We shot this on one of those cold Wintery days. One of those days where the sky looks as grey at 9am, as it will be at 2. Food stylist Adrienne Anderson, tossed a bunch of ingredients together (Radicchio, Apples and Roasted Beets) and we couldn't stop eating it, sneaking bites of the radicchio, stealing chunks of the warm vinegary apple, even on set. Even after everyone's hands had been poking around in it.
Adrienne's in Europe right now, and happily out of contact, so instead of giving you the recipe we shot (above) which is what I intended to do, I thought I'd give you a couple of links to recipes I found online that are similar, but more Summery, and totally delicious. All will would work as side dish to anything you might grill this weekend. A nice shift up from regular Coleslaw.
In the meantime, let's hope Adrienne emerges from foraging in France, blissful and rested.
IN ADRIENNE'S ABSENCE; SIMILAR, BUT MORE SUMMERY: I'd eat these salads right now with succulent, slightly charred, baby lamb chops dipped in a well-drawn bath of Chimichurri.

>And since I'm on a roll... and always a fan of Jamie Oliver. Tap here to go to Jamie's site, for a more wintery coleslaw, should you live in a part of the world where it's actually, still, quite grey...
WHERE EVER YOU ARE, HAPPY MEMORIAL DAY!
