Litchfield Small Slaw

Kathy Litchfield


  • 1 small-medium sized head cabbage
  • 6 to 8 medium-sized carrots
  • 4 hard pears
  • 2 hard apples
  • 1 small onion
  • 4 tablespoons sesame oil
  • 1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Handful or two of raisins


  1. Using food processor, grate or mince (your choice – I minced by accident last week and thus it’s name of ‘small slaw’) all the veggies and fruits except the raisins. Mix all together in a large bowl. In separate container blend the sesame oil, vinegar and salt/pepper to taste. Then mix well, into the slaw. Gently stir in raisins. Serve chilled as side dish.

  2. Variations: I sometimes add chopped (if slaw is grated) or minced (if slaw is minced) walnuts to this recipe – mmm – and also have stuffed egg roll wrappers with this slaw. A yummy dipping sauce for the egg rolls is more of the sesame oil and vinegar dressing that is inside the slaw. Enjoy!
