Cilantro Nectarine Coleslaw

with 4 comments


Katie White is a coleslaw genius, and this is her recipe. Coleslaw is something that I normally think of as being kind of creamy, rasin-laden, delicious, and a little heavy. This is a new approach to coleslaw, and it makes a perfect side dish to any roasted hunk of meat or vegetarian concoction.

This coleslaw made February in Juneau feel a little more like July. The fresh crunch of the cabbage, sweetness of the nectarine, snap of the finely chopped red onion, cilantro-ness of the cilantro, and acidity of apple cider vinegar will have you eating seconds.


– 1 big old head of green cabbage, chopped up all coleslaw style
– 1 or two red or orange peppers, finely cut lengthwise
– 1 head of cilantro, washed, and finely chopped
– 1 or 2 nectarines, cut in half, pitted, and cut crosswise

– 3 Tbsp. good-quality olive oil
– 1 Tbsp. apple cider vinegar
– sea salt & fresh ground pepper to taste

    • YUM!

      Your recipe sounds amazing, but I try to stay away from the mayo when I can resist it. I’d love to try Arizona coleslaw 🙂

      Thanks for reading, Alan!

      Happy Eating,
