Chef notes

Ed Brown's summer slaw makes the most of summer's produce bounty, full of fresh herbs, veggies and a simple homemade vinaigrette. Try it as a side with these delicious crispy baked crab cakes. 


  • green cabbage, shredded
  • 1 cup red cabbage, shredded
  • 1 carrot, peeled, shredded
  • 1 small red onion, peeled, sliced thin
  • 2 nectarine, split, pitted, sliced
  • 2 cups kale, washed, dried, roughly chopped
  • 1/2 cup extra-virgin olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons sherry vinegar
  • 12 mint leaves, roughly torn
  • 12 basil leaves, roughly torn
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper


Make dressing: Whisk olive oil, sherry vinegar, salt and pepper until emulsified. Set aside.

Mix the salad ingredients. Add dressing and toss until well-coated.
