ACTIVE TIME: 10 minutes
TOTAL TIME: 30 minutes
Yield: 4 servings

Procedure

  • Fill your largest pot 3/4 full with water and bring to a boil over high heat.
  • Melt the butter in a skillet and add the croutons. Add the mustard and caraway seeds and stir over medium heat until the butter browns and smells nutty. Remove the skillet from the heat, but leave dressing in the pan.
  • Add the salt and sugar to the boiling water and cook until dissolved. Add the cabbage to the boiling water and cook for 2 minutes exactly.
  • Drain the cabbage in the bowl of the salad spinner. Spin the cabbage to remove any excess water, then add the cabbage to the butter-crumb dressing and toss to coat thoroughly. Serve immediately.
