Black cumin coleslaw

I make a lot of coleslaw at home. We both really enjoy it - especially the crunch of the cabbage and all the other vegetables.  Rarely a week goes by without me making some version or another.  Here is this week's:


In this last batch I added a new ingredient - black cumin seeds (Nigella sativa).  I've just come across black cumin as I've been researching for my class on spices next week. It's a yummy spice - not related to cumin to cumin at all. It went well with the coleslaw.  I'll be writing more about it in the next few days as it has lots of healing properties.

As well as cabbage and black cumin there was also carrots, celery, chives, dried montmorency cherries, mint and sun-dried tomatoes. The dressing was an eggless vegan mayonnaise with lots of fresh lemon juice added.

Sadly today the mint had gone a bit brown, so I pulled all that out - note to self to not add mint if I'm not eating it all in one day! But I'll definitely be adding black cumin seeds to the recipe on a regular basis.

Do you make your own slaw? What is your favorite ingredient?
