How To Make Simple Seedy Slaw

A burst of color and freshness is what makes this seedy slaw made of cabbage, carrots, and parsley a perfect add-on. Best mixed with a garlicky dressing.

Preparation: 15 minutes
Cooking: 5 minutes
Total: 20 minutes



For Coleslaw:

  • 2cupspurple cabbage,finely sliced, one small cabbage will be more than plenty
  • 2cupsgreen cabbage,finely sliced, one small cabbage will be more than plenty
  • 2cupscarrots,shredded, I used store-bought shredded organic carrots, but you could also grate them on a box grater, in a food processor, or julienne the carrots with a sharp knife
  • ¼cupfresh parsley,chopped
  • ¾cupmixed seeds

For Lemon Dressing:

  • ¼cupolive oil
  • 3tbsplemon juice,to taste
  • 1clovegarlic,pressed or minced
  • ½tspground cumin
  • ½tspsalt


  1. In a medium serving bowl, combine the prepared purple and green cabbage, carrots and parsley. Set aside.

  2. Measure out your seeds into a small skillet. Toast over medium heat, stirring frequently, until the seeds are fragrant and the pepitas are starting to make little popping noises. Pour the toasted seeds into the mixing bowl and toss to combine.

  3. To make the dressing, in a small bowl, combine the olive oil with 2 tablespoons of lemon juice. Add the garlic, cumin, and salt. Whisk until thoroughly blended.

  4. Drizzle the dressing over the slaw and toss until all of the ingredients are lightly coated in dressing. Taste and add an additional tablespoon of lemon juice if the slaw needs a little more zip.

  5. Serve immediately or cover and refrigerate to marinate for up to several hours.
