A different Slaw....

My dh is giving me a break!!....he took the granddaughter to the zoo this morning....yeaaaa!! I love her to pieces but this morning i am trying to recover from a bit of Vertigo....(awful dizziness)...they (doctors) say it is inflamation of the labyrinth in the middle ear.....just so uncomfortable...but it could be worse...(think that was also the reason for my irritability the other day....)....I made this wonderful slaw last night...saw Rachael Ray make it on her show and i have to say it was very good and great for these hot here it is:

Carrot Slaw: (my name for it)
big bag of shredded carrots (i used two small for it was all i could find..about 1 pound)
half a head of purple cabbage sliced thinly
half a red onion sliced thinly
raisins (rachael used currents)
toasted chopped hazelnuts..1/2 cup
chopped parsley

toss all of the above into this dressing:

juice from one lemon
1 tablespoon of dijon mustard
salt and pepper
1/3 cup olive oil.....drizzle in and wisk all together...

as Rachael would say: YUMMMOOOOO

I hope you get to feeling better quickly, Dawn!

I've really enjoyed your recent layouts and this recipe does sound "yummo." Thanks for sharing!

Hope you are feeling better. It is no fun not feeling well - especially in the summer heat. Thanks for the recipe - your pictures are looking great - do you just love that new camera?!

That sounds great, Dawn, can't wait to try it! How are you liking the class? Are you getting anywhere? I feel very frustrated, I can't seem to remember all this stuff! In fact, how do you change the aperature setting on manual? I always go back to A to change it and then go back to M. There should be an easier way. I hope you are doing better than I am
