Spicy Peach Coleslaw – An Apple Is an Excellent Thing – Until You’ve Tried a Peach

You may remember this peach coleslaw from such video recipes
as, Grilled Coffee and Cola Skirt Steak. It was a beautiful match, and as I
ate, I couldn’t help but wonder why you don’t see peaches used in these cold
cabbage salads more often.


People have no problem loading up their ‘slaws with grated
apple and diced pineapple, so it can’t be an anti-fruit bias. I think the real
reason is that a perfectly ripe peach is such an incredible experience, that it
seems almost criminal to consume it any other way.

I think George du Maurier put it best when he said, “An
apple is an excellent thing – until you have tried a peach.” So, is that it?
Just too good to not eat as is? That could explain some of it, but just in case
the real reason is that you simply hadn’t thought of it before, I’m posting
this. I hope you give it a try soon. Enjoy!


Ingredients for 6-8 portions:
1 pound thinly sliced cabbage
2 diced peaches
1 tbsp thinly sliced chives
for the dressing (everything is “to taste”):
2 generous tablespoons mayo
1 rounded teaspoon Dijon mustard
1 tablespoon sambal chili sauce
1/2 lemon, juiced
2 tablespoons rice vinegar
1 tablespoon vegetable oil
1/2 teaspoon sugar
salt and cayenne to taste
