Cabbage Slaw with Tangy Mustard-Seed Dressing


8 cups sliced green cabbage (about 1 head)
1 cup thinly vertically sliced onion
1/2 cup grated carrot
1/2 cup chopped fresh cilantro
2 tablespoons canola oil
2 tablespoons brown mustard seeds
1 tablespoon cumin seeds
1 large garlic clove, minced
1/2 jalapeno pepper, finely chopped
1/4 cup white wine vinegar
1 1/2 teaspoons sugar
3/4 teaspoon salt
3/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper


Combine the first 4 ingredients in a large bowl. Heat a small saucepan over medium heat. Add oil to pan; swirl to coat. Add mustard and cumin seeds; cook until mustard seeds begin to pop (don't let the cumin seeds burn). Remove from heat. Stir in garlic and jalapeno; let stand 2 minutes. Add vinegar, sugar, salt, and pepper, stirring with a whisk. Pour vinegar mixture over cabbage mixture; toss to coat. Let stand 15 minutes.
