Roasted Root Vegetable Slaw with Gingered Apples, Raisins, and Walnuts,
Apple and Rosemary-Scented Barley, and Brown Mustard Dressing. (This is the
full name of the salad.)

Note 1: Original recipe used 1 C walnuts. To make this lower fat and
because I am slightly allergic to walnuts I totally eliminated them from
the recipe.

Note 2: When reducing the port wine since the alcohol burns out it will
reduce the calories by 30

Note 3: Original recipe used 1 Tbsp Safflower oil. To lower the fat I
reduced this to 1 tsp

Note 4: Original recipe used spicy brown mustard. I did this and it was
almost over-powering. I would use a not spicy mustard for this recipe.

Note 5: Original recipe used regular mayonnaise. I used nonfat.

Note 6: Rutabaga (abt 1 1/2 lbs), ends trimmed, peeled, and cut into sticks
3" long x 1/8" thick

Note 7: Carrots (about 1/2 lb), ends trimmed, peeled, and cut into sticks
3" long x 1/8" thick

Note 8: Original recipe used 4 Tbsp safflower oil. To reduce the fat I gave
a nonstick pan a spritz of baking spray and then laid the veggies on the
tray, I spritzed them again...I figured it was equivalent to approx 1 Tbsp
or less of the oil.

Note 9: Turnips (abt 1/2 lb), ends trimmed, peeled, and cut into sticks 2"
long x 1/8" thick

Note 10: Parsnips (abt 6 oz), ends trimmed, peeled, and cut into sticks 3"
long x 1/8" thick

Note 11: Original recipe used 1 1/2 C barley. That was way too much. I
would only use 3/4 C

Note 12: Green leaf lettuce, cored, separated into leaves, washed and dried

Prepare the gingered apples, raisins, and walnuts: Preheat the oven to

Toast the walnuts (if you use them) on a baking sheet in the preheated oven
for 10 min. Cool the nuts to room temp before chopping them into 1/8" pcs.
Set aside.

Heat the port wine in a 1 1/2 qt saucepan over med-high heat. Bring to a
boil, then lower the heat and simmer for 15 min, until quite thick and
reduced to about 2 Tbsp. Remove from the heat and set aside until needed.

In a 3 qt stainless steel bowl, add the lemon juice to 2 qts of cold water.
Core and quarter the apples, then slice each quarter widthwise into 1/4"
thick slices. Immediately place the apple slices in the acidulated water to
prevent them from discoloring. (You don't want to leave them in too long or
they will become too tart by picking up too much of the lemon juice flavor
in the apples.)
