>Sweet and Spicy Coleslaw


1/3 cup golden raisins
1 small head napa cabbage, leaves thinly sliced crosswise
2 medium carrots, shredded

1 small apple, such as Granny Smith, cored and cut into 1/2-inch cubes
1/3 cup cider vinegar
1/4 cup honey
2 tablespoons spicy stone-ground mustard
1 large jalapeno chile, stem, ribs, and seeds removed, minced 

2 teaspoons coarse salt
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground pepper

3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil


  1. Make the slaw: Cover raisins with boiling water in a small bowl, and let soak for 15 minutes. Drain. Toss together raisins, cabbage, carrots, and apple in a large bowl.
  2. Make the dressing: Whisk together vinegar, honey, mustard, jalapeno, salt, and pepper. Pour in olive oil in a slow, steady stream, whisking constantly until emulsified. Toss slaw with dressing just before serving.
