Pickled Onion-Apple Slaw #KitchenMatrixCookingProject


Here we are at the first #KitchenMatrixCookingProject post for September. This month, Karen of Karen's Kitchen Stories picked our recipes this month. And this week, she chose slaws. You can read more about our project: here. We'd love to have you join us. 

When most people think of 'slaw', I think, they picture shredded cabbage in a mayonnaise-based dressing. Bittman offers 8 variations of slaws that have a multitude of flavor profiles and I will be sharing more than a few of them. He shares ideas for slaws made with kohlrabi, Brussels sprouts, beets, and even daikon radish. And the dressings are creative as well, including a cumin-yogurt dressing, lemon-tarragon, and some with a decidedly Asian bent.

But, honestly, the holiday weekend threw me off and I thought I had another day to edit the photos and write up the recipes. Darn it!

So, for now, please just enjoy the recipes that the fellow Kitchen Matrix Cooking Project bloggers shared...and my own, off-the-reservation, slaw!





This is a slaw that we liked so much that I made two different versions this weekend. It's almost embarrassing to call it a recipe because it's so simple!

Ingredients

  • 2 C shredded organic green cabbage
  • 1 C thinly sliced apples (I used a mandolin slicer)
  • 1/2 C pickled onions (you can see one of my versions here)
  • 1/4 C juice from the pickled onions
  • 1/3 C olive oil
  • 1/4 C macadamia nuts


Procedure
Place the cabbage, onions, and apples in a large mixing bowl. Pour in the pickle juice and olive oil. Toss to coat and let stand for at least 10 minutes to soften the cabbage. Add in the macadamia nuts and toss again. Serve immediately.

Jamaican Stew Peas #EattheWorld

  Here we are at November #EattheWorld event. What a year this has been! This challenge has been one that gave us some excuse for virtual travel as we've been sheltered-in-place with the coronavirus epidemic for most of 2020. So, we've been able to read about different parts of the world and create a dinner, or at least a dish, with that cuisine. This Eat the World project is spearheaded by Evelyne of  CulturEatz . Read more about  her challenge . This month, Evelyne had us heading to somewhere tropical: Jamaica. I have actually been to Jamaica, but it was almost thirty years ago...and it was just a jumping off point for the rest of our Caribbean exploration. I don't remember eating anything at all!

Lamskoteletten op zijn oud-Hollands for #TheBookClubCookbookCC

Here we are at April's #thebookclubcookbookCC event. It's hard to believe that we only have three more months in this year-long journey to explore - and cook from -  The Book Club Cookbook, Revised Edition: Recipes and Food for Thought from Your Book Club's Favorite Books and Authors  by Judy Gelman and Vicki Levy Krupp.* Judy, Vicki, and their publisher,  Tarcher-Penguin ,  have provided the hosting bloggers with copies of the book plus copies to giveaway each month of the project. Woohoo. Incredibly generous. This month Sarah at  Things I Make (for Dinner)  has selected  Girl With a Pearl Earring  by Tracy Chevalier.** Click to read  Sarah's invitation . She shared the recipe for Griet's Vegetable Soup, but invited us to find inspiration in any of the pages. On the Page... While the boys were playing around the lake during our week in Tahoe earlier in the month, I stayed by the fire and finished this book in one sitting. Loved it. photo by R
