Here is a delicious grated raw vegetable salad made primarily with cabbage and winter squash (I prefer butternut). This salad has a crunchy texture, sweet flavor, and brilliant color, and I think it is far superior to traditional cole slaw.
3 cups grated butternut (or Hubbard) squash (about 1 pound)
3 cups finely shredded cabbage
1 medium to large carrot, grated
1 medium green bell pepper, finely shredded or julienned by hand (not on a grater)
1 cup raisins
1 cup Mayonnaise
в…” cup plain yogurt
2 teaspoons sugar
2 teaspoons Raspberry Vinegar or red wine vinegar
ВЅ teaspoon salt
Freshly ground pepper to taste
- Mix the squash, cabbage, carrot, green pepper, and raisins together in a large bowl.
- Mix the ingredients for the dressing in a small bowl and pour onto the vegetable mixture. Toss to coat well, cover, and chill for at least 1 hour before serving.
NOTE: If you prefer larger pieces of vegetables in your slaw, use a mandoline to cut the squash into very thin ribbons, as shown in the photo opposite.
