Poppyseed Pear Slaw

As Abby's gut has slowly healed up this past year we have joyfully been adding foods back into her diet as she tolerates. After months of a very limited and bland diet Abby takes a huge pleasure in colorful,flavorful foods.

Poppy seeds and cabbage have been recent adds. Not something she eats everyday but tolerates very well now and then. Both poppy seeds and cabbage have values nutritionally. Poppy seed have, thiamin,folate, riboflavin, vitamin B6 and trace amounts of vitamin C, niacin and pantothenic acid.

Red cabbage is a terrific source of vitamin K. Also contains, c,folate,b6, calcium and other great nutrition.

If you have a corn allergy, you may or may not be able to tolerate various produce depending on the corn contamination. We have found locally grown produce and organics to have the least risk,though still risk. Sometimes we soak in cool water and baking soda and rinse well it can reduce surface contamination. We look for dirt,bruises - the more perfect looking the produce the more likely it has been treated with something that may contain corn.(and other chemicals we should not poison our bodies with.)


Poppy Seed Honey Dressing:
1/4 cup braggs cider vinegar
1 cup plain coconut yogurt(or dairy or almond plain yogurt you could use sour cream but we try to get those probiotics in where we can)
1/3 cup poppy seeds
1/3 cup raw local honey
2 teaspoons salt(we use pink for the magnesium value)
1 teaspoon ground black pepper

1 medium red(or green or both) cabbage, chopped or shredded
2 ] carrots, peeled, julienne or grated.
1 bunch green onions, thinly sliced(I cut with kitchen scissors)
1/2 cup minced parsley leaves,(flat leaf italian is the sweetest-the curly tends to be pretty but bitter)
1-2 asian pears(or apples, crisp pear of your choice), peeled, julienne

In a medium bowl, combine all the poppy seed dressing ingredients together until well blended. Set aside.

In bowl, combine the cabbage, carrots, scallions, parsley, and apples. Pour in the dressing and toss until coated. Refrigerate at least 1 hour before serving, mix the salad again before serving.
