Hi friends– I don’t know if you love cole slaw as much as I do. It just always tastes so crisp and fresh and cold. And summery. I got this version from our intrepid P.E. teacher at school, Janie . An amazing woman, who taught right on through rounds of chemotherapy– and has an wonderful, joyful faith. I like her a lot. And her apple cole slaw too.
APPLE PEANUT COLE SLAW
1/2 cup olive oil
1/2 cup cider vinegar
2 tab. sugar
1/2 tsp. salt
ground pepper to taste
1 small head of cabbage, cut to little bits*
2 green apples (I used tart Granny Smiths)
1/2 cup chopped peanuts (or more if you love nuts as much as I do)
1/2 red bell pepper, cut finely
In a large bowl, whisk together the olive oil, vinegar, sugar, salt and pepper until it is emulsified. Then chop up that cabbage, cut the apples to small bits, chop the peanuts and pepper. Then throw it all in with the dressing and mix it up. That’s it! Serve it up with bar-b-qued anything for good eating…
*You can cut up the cabbage in the food processor if you like it fine. I just use a good old butcher knife and whack away so the chunks are a little larger.
