Crunchy Coleslaw with Cayenne and Toasted Caraway Seeds

  • ACTIVE: 25 MIN
  • SERVINGS: 8 to 10

Adam Perry Lang's coleslaw is more spicy and crunchy than creamy, which makes it a terrific foil for rich barbecued meat. He lightly salts the cabbage first to draw out some of the liquid, so it doesn't dilute the dressing.
