Long ago , I read in an English salad cookbook at Value Village that your children will like your coleslaw better if you add curry powder and grapes to it. I didn't buy the book, but tried the tip out when I got home and it was a success--Rachael gobbled up my improved coleslaw!
I've been getting some nice cabbages lately, and had the above in mind when I made the following, very tasty, coleslaw. It's not grape season now, of course, so I used raisins instead. Celery would be nice in it, too, if you want to make it more Waldorfy. This recipe serves one as a solitary lunch, more if you're having it with company and serving other things in addition.
1/4 medium cabbage, finely sliced (or grated if you prefer soft salad to crunchy)
big handful raisins (or about 1C halved grapes)
big handful walnuts, very roughly chopped
1 apple, cored, cut into 1/8ths, and sliced
1 1/2T Veganaise
1T apple cider vinegar
2t agave nectar
big pinch salt
rounded teaspoon curry powder
Mix everything together.
