Cabbage and Apple Slaw with Butter-Toasted Pecans

ingredients

  • 1 apple
  • 3 cups cabbage
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
  • 1/4 cup pecans
  • 1 tablespoon unsalted butter
  • 2 teaspoons sugar
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh chives

procedure

dish: salad
season: fall

Cut apple into 1/2-inch cubes and very thinly slice enough cabbage to measure 3 cups. In a bowl toss together apple, cabbage, lemon juice, and salt to taste.

Chop pecans. In a small skillet toast pecans in butter over moderate heat, stirring occasionally, until fragrant. Sprinkle sugar and salt to taste over pecans and cook, stirring frequently, until pecans are coated, about 1 minute. Remove skillet from heat and cool pecans slightly. Add pecans with butter in skillet and chives to cabbage mixture and toss to combine well. Season slaw with salt.
