Peaches, plums and nectarines are the crowning glory of the summer fruit season. They’re bright, beautiful and juicy and incredibly healthy. So whether it’s a special occasion or just a family-round-the-dinner-table event, add a dash of elegance with this gorgeously colourful and delicious stone fruit slaw:
Stone Fruit Slaw
1 tbsp of rice vinegar
A big glug of olive oil
Couple pinches of brown sugar
Juice and rind of 1 lime
Salt and cracked black pepper to taste
1/2 red onion, finely chopped
1 red chilli, deseeded and finely chopped
Chunk of fresh ginger, peeled and grated
3 spring onions, finely sliced
Handful of fresh mint leaves, finely chopped
2 to 3 handfuls of various types of firm stone fruit, pitted and cut into strips
To make a vinaigrette for the slaw, mix together all the ingredients except the fruit, mint and coriander in a salad bowl. Finish by tossing the fruit in the dressing to coat and serve topped with fresh mint and coriander.
