Carrot Cabbage Slaw with Cumin Vinaigrette
PUBLISHED ON: 10.06.2009
I am not sure where my autumn breeze went! The Fall season was teasing me. No matter, it is Fall and this is a perfect Fall salad recipe. This is a wonderful crisp cabbage, carrot slaw scented with cumin. A low fat, low calorie and high-fiber dish.

Note: Recipe from Gourmet
Note: Recipe from Gourmet
2-1/4 lb. carrots
2 Tbsp Sherry Vinegar
1 Tbsp packed dark brown sugar
1 tsp cumin seeds, toasted ( note: I used dried cumin)
6 Tbsp extra-virgin olive oil
1/2 lb Savoy cabbage, thinly sliced ( about 6 cups)
An adjustable blade slicer fitted with 1/8 inch julienne attachment
1. Pick enough fronds from the carrot tops to measure 1 cup, then coarsely chop.
2. Cut carrots crosswise into 2-inch pieces, then julienne with a slicer.
3. Whisk together vinegar, brown sugar, cumin, 1/2 tsp salt, and 1/4 tsp pepper in a bowl, then add oil in a slow stream, whisking until emulsified.
4. Toss cabbage, carrots, chopped carrot tops in a large bowl with enough vinaigrette to coat.
5. Season with salt and pepper.
6. Let stand 30 minutes before serving.
What a beautiful dish holding your lovely carrot salad. It looks yummy.

A delightful slaw! That vinaigrette must taste wonderful!Unfortunately, the last Gourmet Magazine will be released in November…. Apparently, the entire staff of 180 was let go and they had to be cleared out by the end of the week!Cheers,Rosa

This looks wonderful. I love the cumin vinaigrette! Thanks for posting it. I'm shocked to hear that Gourmet is folding. What a loss.
I love carrot slaw and the cumin vaaigrette just turns it into fall. (Our autumn is freezing and rainy). I am also mourning Gourmet.
Such a colorful dish! I love that you used cumin in the vinaigrette. Simply wonderful.

That dish is so pretty! I am happy to meet you:)
What an interesting idea to use cumin in the vinaigrette. We have a bunch of cabbage in the refrigerator we were looking for something different to do with.
Yum yum I love slaws. Cumin with cabbage is a new one to me, but it sounds good. Will add this to my stash. I like that this has no mayo, very important as we have an allergic-to-everything kid, and this would be a winner for her.
This sounds delicious with the cumin! It's light, crunchy, and must have lots of flavor.
Eu adoro salada !!!!! E vinagreta. Hummmm … Beijo Nil.

Very nice dish, and I mean that both ways – the receptacle and the great looking slaw! Perfect for Fall….which by the way, appears to have skipped by Tallahassee. Arrgh!

What a delicious sounding slaw and your dish holding the slaw is very pretty! I love your blog too…gorgeous.
Lovely. I'm such a cumin addict….I've even been known to have it on icecream with orange rind! Lovely serving dish as well.
This looks great – and I love the plate! So sad that Gourmet is going away…but at least we have years and years of recipes to try out until then!
The colors of Fall with a little heat… cumin is a nice addition to your slaw. I'm so glad to discover your very creative twist on cooking. Go Gators!

A beautiful recipe so well presented too in that lovely dish!Aaaaah,…
Yay! A healthy Fall recipe. So easy to stick to the comfort foods when the weather starts to get cooler. Now I have another alternative for something yummy and nutritious.
The color is this is just amazing! This is a slaw I would definitely love. I hope your fall comes back!
I'm surprised with the addition of cumin in this dish. It is one of my favorite spices, and I use it in several dishes, but never tried it with these vegetables. Must try it. and thank you for such a healthy dish. As the season of cabbage and caroot is approaching here, this will be on my top list to try soon.
It's perfect for fall, and a perfect homage to the now lost Gourmet. Looks yummy!
Perfect slaw and such a beautiful plate to show it off in! Thanks for stopping by my little corner of the world 🙂
This looks wonderful Velva and that salad plate or bowl is just fantastic!
Stunningly beautiful! And from Gourmet magazine (sniff).
I am not the biggest fan of anything slaw but I would taste this one if only for the sweetness of the carrots!
Wow, this slaw looks awesome! Thanks for the comment; you should really try pumpkin butter!!
