Carrot cabbage slaw with tangy orange dressing

Carrot Cabbage Slaw with Orange Molasses Dressing

Carrot cabbage slaw is a flavourful crunchy salad that is perfectly suited to summer meals. Tossed with an orange dressing it’s fresh and tangy. 

Unlike many salads this carrot cabbage slaw can last for a few days in the fridge. The vegetables lose a bit of their crunch as they marinate in the dressing but never seem to get too soft. Serve this salad with anything and everything. Toss it with a little spinach and top with an egg for a main dish salad.

    Hi I have some of your molasses and I’m afraid I don’t know how to use it, I was hoping to get a cookbook.
    Years ago I was at a friends house for her daughters birthday, Julie was a health nut and always tried to cook only good healthy food.
    For her daughters birthday she wanted to make things the kids would like, she made a cake with carob and molasses and what else I don’t know she also made ice-cream from what I don’t know. I thought it would be terrible I was so wrong it was great and so much more filling (what a treat) and healthy too. I didn’t know it was possible to have such delicious and healthy sweets and also I see your cook Crosby Molasses looks very healthy. I read somewhere I could request a cookbook (on my molasses container I think) if so I’d love one Thank you Fred.
