slaws - the good and bad

Since our recent success with potato salad I placed a lot of faith in experimenting with Everyday Food's Slaws.

First up was the Bok Choy, Carrot and Apple Slaw from Everyday Food Great Food Fast we had alongside Turkey Burgers (these same burgers from the other week).
And it's not very good at all. Raw baby bok choy is too tough to eat. It didn't sound appetizing from the get-go, so I should have known better. Ah well.

We decided to make the Carrot -Cumin Slaw with Buttermilk Baked Chicken from Everyday Food Great Food Fast.
This slaw is a huge an improvement. It's only minutes to make when you use a food processor to shred the carrots and cabbage. A very nice side to buttermilk baked chicken, which is a total keeper of a recipe. It tastes like a more natural and flavourful Shake and Bake (sorry, that's my only point of reference here since that's how I grew up eating drumsticks). But the coating was light and crispy and you certainly don't feel like you're missing out since it's not deep fried.
