Coleslaw has never been this exciting! Our twist on the all-too-common coleslaw will open your eyes (and appetite) for what is possible for this familiar dish.


1/2 small red onion, thinly sliced

1 tsp ground cumin

1 tsp group coriander

1 tbsp. SMAK DAB Curry Dijon, White Wine Herb, or Hot Honey Jalapeno Mustard 

3 tbsp. fresh lemon juice

1 tbsp. grated lemon zest

1 tsp honey

1 cup mayo (homemade or Hellman’s)

1 small head Savoy cabbage, sliced into thin ribbons (about 12 loose cups)

2 carrots, peeled and shaved into ribbons (about 2 loose cups)

1/2 cup chopped mint

1/4 cup toasted pistachios, coarsely chopped 

Sea salt and feshly ground black pepper


Soak the red onion in ice cold water to mellow, about 20 minutes. Drain.

In a bowl, combine spices, mustard, honey, mayo, a good pinch of salt, lemon juice and zest. Stir until well combined.

Put the cabbage, carrots, mint, and onion in a large bowl, and toss the salad with 2/3 of the dressing. Let sit for about 10 minutes to mellow, and drizzle remaining dressing. Sprinkle with chopped pistachios, and a few grinds of fresh black pepper. Season with additional salt and pepper if needed. Serve immediately!
