My fondness for cabbage is well-documented on the blog, and this unique Moroccan Cabbage Slaw with Carrots, Cumin, Lemon and Mint is my latest cabbage slaw favorite. The cumin combined with carrots gives this slaw the Moroccan twist, and when my nephew Jake and I tried the recipe we added the chopped mint, which really made the flavors pop in the salad. I’m a big fan of green onions as well, so we also used a generous amount of those. Mint makes this a summertime slaw recipe, and I’d love this salad combined with some lovely Grilled Vegetables from the garden!

We loved the carrots in this, but they’re the highest carb ingredient, so feel free to use more cabbage and less carrots (or skip the carrots completely) if you wish. But if you like the ingredients, I think you’ll be surprised at how delicious this was, enjoy!

Thinly slice and chop enough green cabbage to make 4-5 cups of sliced cabbage. You can grate carrots yourself, but I love these thicker shredded carrots in salads. Prepare 1/2 cup each of sliced green onions and chopped fresh mint. Whisk together the mayo, lemon juice, ground cumin, and sweetener of your choice to make the dressing.

Stir together the cabbage, carrots, and green onions and then combine with enough dressing to moisten all the salad ingredients. Then stir in the chopped mint and serve.

Moroccan Cabbage Slaw with Carrots, Cumin, Lemon, and Mint

If you like fresh mint you’ll swoon over this Moroccan Cabbage Slaw with Carrots, Cumin, Lemon, and Mint.

Ingredients:

Salad Ingredients:

  • 4-5 cups thinly sliced green cabbage
  • 2 cups shredded carrots (I like the thick pre-shredded carrots that come in a bag for this)
  • 1/2 cup thinly sliced green onions
  • 1/2 cup chopped fresh mint
  • salt and fresh ground black pepper to taste

Dressing Ingredients:

Directions:

  1. Thinly slice enough green cabbage to make 4-5 cups thinly sliced cabbage.
  2. Grate carrots to make 2 cups shredded carrots (or use the shredded carrots in a bag like I did, which are slightly thicker than the carrots you grate by hand.)
  3. Thinly slice green onions and chop the mint (washing and drying it first if using garden mint.)
  4. Whisk together the mayo, fresh lemon juice, ground cumin, and sweetener of your choice to make the dressing.
  5. Combine sliced cabbage, shredded carrots, and sliced green onions in a bowl; then stir in enough dressing to moisten all the ingredients.
  6. Stir in chopped mint, season to taste with salt and fresh ground black pepper, and serve.

Notes:

If this makes more salad than you are going to eat at one time, I would only add mint to the portion of salad you’re going to use. Refrigerate the mint and leftover salad separately and add mint to the rest of the salad just before you eat it.

Low-Carb Diet / Low-Glycemic Diet / South Beach Diet Suggestions:
The addition of carrots would make this Moroccan Cabbage Slaw with Carrots, Cumin, Lemon, and Mint limited to phase 2 or 3 for the South Beach Diet, and you might want to reduce or eliminate the carrots for most other low-carb diet plans.

  1. This flavor combination sounds fantastic!

  2. Amy, so glad you enjoyed it. I guess you can tell that I'm crazy about cabbage!

  3. Kalyn, you have such a way with cabbage. I love slaws as an alternative to salads, and this one was delicious. I mixed it together except for the mint and tasted it before and after the mint. I love it both ways. If I can't find mint, I wouldn't hesitate to make it without. I also might serve it with a lemon wedge for an extra squeeze of acidity just before eating. Really delicious! Thanks for all you do to keep me and my family eating healthy choices.

  4. My daughter and i love making salads. There is no one in my family who has tried this slew for sure. I am so excited and cannot wait to try this Moroccan slew. Ingredients are readily available and the preparation instructions are supper easy. We will try this today! Thanks.

  5. Thanks Mimi, that sounds like a great combination!

  6. Wow! I love slaw – this would be a great side dish for a tagine. Can't wait to make it.

    Mimi

  7. Thanks everyone; so glad people are liking this!

  8. I often add cabbage to salads to give it a bit of a crunch. This recipe looks wonderful.

  9. I let mint "free range" in my herb garden, so I'm always looking for new ways to use it. Love the combination of flavorings in this dressing, and can't wait to try the recipe.

  10. I love cabbage slaws too. They are seasonless – or at least they are at my house!

  11. I've never really come around to most slaws, I think because the ones of my youth were slathered in so much mayo! But this sounds truly refreshing…and I'm never one to turn down Moroccan flavors!
