Cole Slaw with Lime-Celery Seed Dressing

I love this cole-slaw for the brilliant colours. It tastes pretty darn good too!

Be sure your celery seed is fresh. Fresh celery seed has a lovely sprightly flavour that is excellent in salad dressings, but it goes rancid very quickly. Buy it in small batches and keep it in the freezer.

4 to 8 servings
40 minutes - 20 minutes prep time

1 large or 2 medium carrots (about 3 cups grated)
1 1/2 to 2 cups shredded red cabbage
3 to 4 cups shredded green savoy cabbage

Peel and grate the carrot. Shred the two cabbages. Mix all together in a large bowl.

1/2 cup mayonnaise
the juice of 1 large lime
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon celery seed

Put the mayonnaise in a small bowl, and mix in the lime juice a little at a time. Grind the salt and celery seed together, and mix them into the mayonnaise. Toss the cole-slaw in the dressing. Return the coleslaw to the fridge for at least 20 minutes to let the flavours meld.
