This juicy cabbage and carrot slaw is very popular in "plato del día" eateries in the Dominican Rep. Our favorite ensalada de repollo y zanahoria is easy to make at home, and requires only a few ingredients. It's one of my favorite salads to serve with my parrilladas.
Mix cabbage, carrot, and raisins in a colander. Pour in boiling water and let it run out of the colander into the sink. This will wash the vegetables, but also wilt them a bit.Let all the water drain and let the vegetables cool to room temperature.
