Asian Inspired Slaw with Bartlett Pears

Serves4 ServingsPrep Time20 minsCook Time5 minsTotal Time25 mins

 1 large carrots, grated
 2 spring onion stems, finely sliced
 ¼ head of red cabbage, thinly sliced
 70g snow peas, topped, tailed & thinly sliced
 2 Bartlett Pears, unripened
 ½ cup coriander, loosely packed, roughly chopped
 3 tbsp tamari or soy sauce
 1 tbsp sesame oil
 Juice of ½ lime
 2 tsp honey
To Serve
 2 tbsp sesame seeds

Place a saucepan onto the stovetop and bring to a low heat. Add the sesame seeds to the pan and stir frequently until toasted and golden. Once golden pour into a small bowl and set aside.


Make the dressing by adding tamari, sesame oil, lime juice and honey to a small saucepan. Turn the stove onto a low heat and whisk to combine. Continue to stir until honey has dissolved.


To a large bowl add the carrots, spring onion, red cabbage, snow peas and coriander.


Cut the pears into quarters lengthways. Remove the cores and then slice lengthways to create thin pieces. Laying the pear slices flat, slice lengthways again to julienne. Add julienned pears to the bowl, top with as much dressing as desired and toss to combine.


Top the coleslaw with toasted sesame seeds before serving.

Note: It is best to use unripened pears in this recipe for extra crunch.
If Bartlett pears aren’t in season, use Packham pears.
