  • 3/4 cup plus 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil 
  • 2 tablespoons sesame seeds
  • 1/4 cup pepitas (hulled pumpkin seeds) 
  • 1/4 cup roasted sunflower seeds
  • Kosher salt
  • Pepper
  • 1 tablespoon minced shallot 
  • 1 small garlic clove, grated
  • 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard 
  • 2 tablespoons chopped chives 
  • 1 teaspoon distilled white vinegar 
  • 1/3 cup buttermilk
  • 1 pound rutabaga, peeled and shredded on the large holes of a box grater (5 cups) 
  • 1 pound Savoy cabbage, cored and shredded (10 cups)

How to make this recipe

  1. In a large nonstick skillet, combine 1 tablespoon of the olive oil with all of the seeds and cook over moderately low heat, stirring, until golden and fragrant, 3 to 4 minutes. Spread the seeds on a paper towel-lined plate, season with salt and pepper and let cool. 

  2. In a large bowl, combine the shallot, garlic, mustard, chives and vinegar. Whisking constantly, slowly drizzle in the buttermilk and the remaining 3/4 cup of olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Add the shredded rutabaga and cabbage and toss to coat. Transfer to a platter and top with the toasted seeds. 

Make Ahead

The slaw can be made 3 hours ahead and topped with the seed mixture right before serving.
