Scott’s Waldorf Slaw


Cabbage.  Magnificent.


This is an easy-to-make Waldorf-Coleslaw hybrid that Scott created and I love it.  The cabbage is already at Farmers Market and the early apples are coming in so it seemed like a perfect time to share this salad with you.   The dressing is sweet-tart and the curry powder is subtle but essential—-great for a warm summer’s day.

Not bad for a fall day either.



Such beauty!  I suppose summer does have a few up-sides…


In this photo of the salad I had forgotten to add the raisins.  The dressing is tangy to offset their sweetness, so don’t forget the raisins!



Mayonnaise.  The mayo will greatly affect the flavor of this and I’m not sure what to recommend.  I love Mrs. Clarks mayo and I haven’t found another brand that is as creamy.  Mrs. Clarks is from Des Moines, Iowa and I don’t know if it is available throughout the nation.  If you’re interested in making your own mayonnaise, here is a recipe for it on the Kitchn from the French Culinary Institute.

Let it sit for 20-30 minutes to let the flavors mix together.
