This recipe makes traditional coleslaw fresh for fall, with ingredients that make the most of the autumn harvest. Serve it alongside your favorite fall dish or use it to start off a rustic meal. Try any kind of nuts you like in place of the pine nuts, and for an even homier feel, add dried cranberries instead of raisins.

Carrot Shopping Tip

Look for vegetables that are firm and bright in color – avoid those that are wilted or have wrinkled skins, which are signs of age and damage.

Carrot Cooking Tip

Vegetables should typically be cooked as quickly as possible, as they can become bland and mushy, and lose vitamins and minerals.
