Cumin Coleslaw

I love coleslaw in the summer, with fresh chicken, lamb or fish it’s a perfect way to cool down a hot dish. But what about a coleslaw that warms up a pretty standard meal? We eat a lot of chicken in my house, it’s versatile, not costly and lean. However unless spiced up a little it can be bland. So I created a perfect side dish, my cumin coleslaw. You’ll taste an initial zing from the lemon and apple, but the warmth of the cumin will lovingly linger. Enjoy!

Cumin Coleslaw

Here’s the recipe. Serve with plain roasted chicken thighs or legs.

Which cabbage?

I’ve used a sweetheart, or pointed cabbage as below. You can easily use a green, or round cabbage.

  1. How long will this last?
    – Can i make it a few days before it’s needed? With the weather being so good this past week it will be nice to have at a bbq this weekend hopefully! 😀

    1. Should last you around 4 days, it’s best fresh as the cumin seeds are supposed to be warmed. But fine to make and refrigerate. 🙂
