Winter Coleslaw


    Filled with phytochemicals, this coleslaw will help cleanse your liver and protect you from cancer. Dillweed can be purchased in the produce section and freezes well for future use. The combination of dill, caraway and lemon adds a special tang. Use parsley if dill is not available.

    1/4 head purple cabbage
    1/4 head green cabbage
    2 carrots
    1 cup (250 ml) fresh dill weed

    1 tsp (5 ml) dill seeds
    1 tsp (5 ml) caraway seeds
    Sea salt to taste
    1/2 cup (125 ml) lemon juice
    1 lemon, sliced for garnish

    Using a food processor, grate the cabbage and carrots. Mix together in a large bowl. Finely chop the dill and add to the bowl.

    For the dressing, grind the dill seed and caraway seeds coarsely, using a grinder or mortar and pestle. Blend salt, ground seeds and lemon juice in a jar. Toss salad with the dressing, chill and serve. Garnish with dill and lemon slices. Serves two to four.

    Salmon Burgers with Mango-Thai Salsa

    These Asian-inspired salmon burgers won’t leave you missing the beef < or > the bun. And keep this fruity and fiery salsa in mind the next time you want to jazz up grilled chicken or taco night. Serrano pepper or chile de arbol would be good swaps for bird’s eye pepper in the salsa. You can even mix some Sriracha sauce into the burgers to further punch up the meal. Skin deep Skinless fish is the only way to go for burgers. A helpful fishmonger will kindly skin fillets for you before purchase. As an alternative to salmon, you can also blend up skinless fillets of arctic char or rainbow trout.
