Tangy Cabbage Slaw with Golden Raisins

Laurent Tourondel's coleslaw is nothing like the white drippy slaw that's standard at summer barbecues. Instead of mayonnaise, he mixes a tangy dressing of vinegar, mustard, and walnut and grapeseed oils then studs the cabbage slaw with plump golden raisins to add a little sweetness.
