In a bowl, whisk all the dressing ingredients and set aside. Alternatively, you can put all ingredients in a jar, secure it with a tight fitting lid and shake until perfectly combined (this is actually the quickest way to make the dressing).

In a large salad bowl, toss the cabbage with the carrot and the seeds. Pour the mixture over the vegetables and toss gently until thoroughly coated and moistened. Refrigerate to chill, garnish with the thyme and serve.
