No-Mayo Coleslaw

Adapted from How to Cook Everything by Mark Bittman

·      2 tbsp Dijon mustard

·      2 tbsp sherry vinegar

·      1 clove garlic

·      1 tbsp minced hot pepper (optional)

·      ¼ cup extra virgin olive oil

·      6 cups cored and shredded cabbage

·     2 medium grated carrots

·      1/3 cup chopped scallions

·      salt and freshly ground black pepper

·      ¼ cup chopped fresh parsley or cilantro leaves

To make the dressing, whisk together mustard, vinegar, garlic and hot peppers in a small bowl. Add the oil gradually, whisking the whole time. Combine the cabbage, bell pepper and scallion and toss with the dressing. Sprinkle with salt and pepper and refrigerate until ready to serve (it’s good to let the slaw rest for about an hour). Before serving toss with the parsley.

Balsamic-Roasted Brussels Sprouts

from Barefoot Contessa Foolproof by Ina Garten


1½ pounds Brussels sprouts, trimmed and cut in half through the core
4 ounces pancetta, sliced ¼ inch thick
¼ cup good olive oil
Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
1 tablespoon syrupy balsamic vinegar

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Place the Brussels sprouts on a sheet pan, including some of the loose leaves, which get crispy when they’re roasted. Cut the pancetta into 1/2-inch dice and add to the pan. Add the olive oil, 1½ teaspoons salt, and ½ teaspoon pepper and toss with your hands. Spread out the mixture in a single layer. Roast the Brussels sprouts for 20 to 30 minutes, until they’re tender and nicely browned and the pancetta is cooked. Toss once during roasting. Remove from the oven, drizzle immediately with the balsamic vinegar, and toss again. Taste for seasonings and serve hot.
