THE RECIPE

Apple Radish Slaw with Honey Lime Jalapeño Vinaigrette

Simple and seasonal summer slaw

When we say “slaw,” your mind probably jumps straight to cabbage-based, mayo-packed cole slaw – a common attendee of the American barbecue. Did you know that there is a whole realm of healthier, lighter (often Asian-inspired) slaws that contain zero mayonnaise? In this case and point, Liz keeps it light and colorful with a crunchy trio of carrots, radishes, and granny smith apples all sliced into matchsticks, tossed with diced scallions and a sweet n’ spicy dressing. Honey, jalapeno, lime, and mint are whisked together into a balanced vinaigrette that makes this dish pop with flavor; the resulting slaw is the perfect, refreshing sidekick to whatever you may be firing up the grill for this season. The best part? Liz lets you in on the secret of how to control the spiciness, whether you’re looking to bring the heat or dial it down.
