CONFETTI COLESLAW



Confetti Coleslaw image

Provided by Food Network Kitchen

Categories     side-dish

Time 2h20m

Yield 6 servings

Number Of Ingredients 13

1 small head red cabbage (about 1 3/4 pounds)
1 bunch medium carrots, peeled (about 5)
2 tablespoons kosher salt
2 Granny Smith apples
6 scallions (white and green parts), sliced
1 bunch watercress
3 tablespoons cider vinegar
3 tablespoons honey
2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
1 tablespoon celery seeds or 2 teaspoons caraway seeds
1 tablespoon plus 1 teaspoon kosher salt
Freshly ground black pepper
1/3 cup extra-virgin olive oil

Steps:

  • For the salad: Quarter and core the cabbage. Set up a food processor with the slicing blade. Slice the cabbage and then transfer it to a colander. Switch to the grating blade and shred the carrots; add to cabbage. Toss the cabbage and carrots with the salt and set colander in the sink until the vegetables wilt, 1 to 4 hours. Rinse cabbage mixture thoroughly in cold water and spin it dry in a salad spinner.
  • Meanwhile, make the dressing: Whisk the vinegar with the honey, mustard, celery seeds, salt, and black pepper to taste in a small bowl. Gradually whisk in the olive oil, starting with a few drops and then adding the rest in a steady stream to make a smooth, slightly thick dressing.
  • Quarter, core, and shred the apples. Toss the cabbage mixture with the apples, scallions, and about 1¿2 cup of the dressing. Refrigerate until chilled and the flavors come together, about 1 hour. When ready to serve, toss the watercress with the remaining dressing. Make a ring on a platter with the watercress, and mound the coleslaw in the middle of the ring.

CONFETTI SALAD



Confetti Salad image

I received this recipe from my mom's friend, Paula. I bring it to a lot of pot lucks, and I always get requests for the recipe. Cucumber should be European kind. You can use yellow pepper instead of orange, and other beans instead of the cannellini. Cooking time=min marinating time I use fresh dill. Seasoned salt is to taste - there was no measurement in the recipe, so I guessed 1tsp. Also, when I first tried this salad, I believe it had white wine or rice wine vinegar - the taste was subtle, not as strong as cider vinegar. DO NOT use olive oil.
