I saw a recipe recently for coleslaw that included caraway seeds. I had a large bag of shredded cabbage and a fresh jar of caraway seeds and pulled this slaw together on a whim. I like the added flavor from the caraway seeds. I think toasting seeds and grains always ups the flavor so I toasted the caraway. I also prefer cabbage very slightly wilted over raw. Super easy, quick and tasty side dish.
