Jeanine Donofrio puts her own creative spin on classic slaw using thinly sliced apples and radishes.
- 1 Gala apple
- 8 to 10 small red radishes
- 4 scallions, finely chopped
- Juice of 1 lime
- 1/2 tsp extra-virgin olive oil
- 1/2 cup chopped cilantro
- Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste
1 Slice the apple into 4 sections around the core. Cut one section into very thin slices, then stack the slices and cut them horizontally into thin 1"-long matchsticks. Repeat for each section, slicing the rest of the apple. Cut the radishes into very thin slices, then stack the slices and cut them horizontally into matchsticks, matching the size of the apple matchsticks.
2 In a medium bowl, combine the sliced apple, radishes, scallions, lime juice, olive oil, cilantro and a pinch of salt and freshly ground pepper. Toss to coat.
3 Place the bowl in the refrigerator to chill for 30 minutes.
4 Before serving, season the slaw with additional salt and pepper to taste.
Cook time: 45 minutes
