Give slaw a refreshing and surprising twist with sweet pears and the heat of chili peppers. This recipe calls for jalapeño, which are easy to find, but Fresno chilis make a lovely alternative if you can get them.


  • ½ tsp. chopped jalapeño
  • ¼ cup chopped fresh cilantro
  • 3 scallions, thinly sliced
  • 6 Asian pears, thinly sliced
  • 1 tsp. fresh grated ginger
  • 4 Tbsp. seasoned rice vinegar
  • 4 Tbsp. lime juice
  • 6 stalks celery, sliced


  1. Toss all ingredients together and let stand at room temperature to let flavors combine (15 minutes). Serve immediately.
