Want a yummy low-calorie side salad? Try Zucchini Carrot Lime Coleslaw, with grated zucchini and carrots in a lime, cumin cilantro dressing!
Place cumin in a "dry" skillet. Stir and cook on low heat for one minute, or until smell it's fragrance. Transfer cumin to a small bowl. Add mayonnaise, lime juice and zest, cilantro, salt and pepper. Stir until combined well. Set aside.
Cut off both ends of zucchini. Grate, using large holes on a grater (or food processor with grating blade). Place shredded zucchini on several thicknesses of paper towels. Press down firmly with more paper towels to blot out as much of the natural wetness of zucchini as possible. Peel carrots; cut off both ends. Grate carrots, using large holes on grater (or food processor with grating blade).
Place shredded zucchini/carrots in a medium bowl. Pour dressing over the top (use ALL the dressing). Toss until all ingredients are combined. May serve immediately, or can be covered/refrigerated for later.
To serve, transfer to serving dish. Garnish with lime wedge, and 2-3 cilantro sprigs. Coleslaw is best served on the same day you make it! Coleslaw still tastes great on subsequent days, but you may have to remove liquid from bottom of bowl (thanks juicy zucchini!). Store leftovers (covered) in refrigerator for 2-3 days.
Caloric calculation is based on the use of light mayonnaise.
