  1. Combine cole slaw mix, apple, green onions, ginger, lemon juice, and lemon zest in large bowl. Mix well and refrigerate until ready to use.

  • Test Kitchen Tips
  • Ras el hanout is a spice mix from North Africa, although generally associated with Morocco. The name is Arabic for "head of the shop" (similarly to the English expression "top-shelf") and implies a mixture of the best spices the seller has to offer. It can be found online and in specialty and ethnic grocery shops.
