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


Strawberry Banana Smoothie

Banana Strawberry Smoothie

This recipe is really a no-brainer but it’s nice to be reminded how delicious a good smoothie is now and again. I know a lot of folks on cleanses and New Year health regimes. This smoothie is totally your friend if you’re trying to eat healthy and win at life. People can put different protein, vitamin, or supplement powders in their concoctions. I’m a fan of good old fashion plain low-fat organic yogurt, fresh fruit mixed with frozen, and a little water. I’ve still got a little cache of frozen freshly picked huckleberries in my freezer that I might blend on up in one of these dandies.

Thanks to my awesome mom for loaning me her blender! Thanks to the band, Bluegrass 101 for the mason jar! If you’re interested in checking out tunes under the band’s new-ish name, The Great Alaska Bluegrass Band, you can do so here.

1/2 cup of the yogurt of your choice
1/2 cup of water, or any kind of milk (soy, almond, cow, goat, etc.)
1 banana
handful of frozen strawberries

Um, put the ingredients in a blender and blend them.
