Winter Slaw Recipe

Winter Slaw Recipe

My fellow Teton Valley yogi is a famous chef. Ross Kamens brought this slaw to our home on Christmas Eve. The slaw was mentioned again and again over the next few days, so I asked Ross if I could share it with you. (Ross has never given me a recipe before because they are secret formulas for bliss, which is basis of his career.) You can watch him on YouTube with his videos as the senior Chef and co-founder of the great quick restaurant, Noodles & Company.

Ayurvedic Winter Salads

I eat slaw as my go-to winter salad. Cabbage is hearty, inexpensive, and packed with antioxidants, Vitamin K and Vitamin C. For Vata body types, who tend to steer clear of the cruciferous family, the key is to let your slaw sit on the counter. Overnight is fine! Basically, slaw turns into a marinated salad, which turns into sauerkraut within just a few days at room temperature. The longer the slaw sits… the more probiotic effect and enhanced digestion and absorption for Vata types.

    I haven’t made this since last year. Glad I found it. Share with your friends! You could also ferment this into a kraut.
