a Quick 'n' EZ lunch

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.

That sounds Qwik N EZ, as well as tasty. Do you think Dakki would like it?

I bet she would--you'd have to grate the cabbage to make it mushier for her.

Salad looks and sounds delicious.
Remember the time you gave me a jar of grape butter. I saved it for a special occasion and finally used it to make Biscotti Rollati. I'll give a few to your mom. They do contain eggs so you may not want them.
The cookies turned out really well thanks to your grape butter.
