Quick Pear and Cabbage Slaw

  • 1/2 head of cabbage, sliced into very thin strips (about 5 cups)
  • 3 firm pears, cored
  • 3 tablespoons red onion, minced
  • zest of 1 lime
  • 2 tablespoons fresh squeezed lime juice
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon mayonnaise
  • 1/2 teaspoon Dijon mustard
  • 1 teaspoon salt, plus a pinch more
  • 1 teaspoon fresh-ground pepper

Place the prepared cabbage in a large bowl, sprinkle with the salt and minced onion, and turn with your fingers. Slice the pears lengthwise, and then slice in half. Next, prepare the dressing. Whisk the lime juice into the olive oil, whisk in the mayo, mustard, salt, and zest. Drizzle dressing over the cabbage, and turn with your hands. Fold in the pears and fresh-ground pepper. Slaw tastes great after 10 minutes, but will keep nicely covered in the fridge for a day or more.
