During the last few months (COVID) I have been watching Christina Tosi on Instagram, and learning a ton. Recently, she has been featuring guests and their recipes. The recipe for Pineapple Slaw from Ash Ledet, is a perfect sandwich topping or side to any spicy dish. I recently made a pork shoulder in the Instant Pot, with a flavorful Santa Maria seasoning. I shredded the meat to make BBQ pork sandwiches, and the Pineapple Slaw MADE the sandwich. I am so happy that Ash shared his recipe, I know that he put lots of thought into making it perfect.
½ cup / 64g. Kew Pie Mayo
I have always enjoyed when someone makes a salad with a good poppy seed dressing. I found this recipe years ago in a Saveur magazine and have kept it in my recipe file for years.
The note on the recipe says: Popularized by Texas cookbook author Helen Corbitt in the 1950’s, this sweet-tart vinaigrette. enriched with poppy seed, is perfect for a salad of butter lettuce.
Makes about 2 cups
2 Tablespoons poppy seeds
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1/3 cup white wine vinegar
2 teaspoons dry mustard
2 teaspoons kosher salt
1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1 small yellow onion, finely grated, juice reserved
1/4 cup canola oil
1/4 cup olive oil
Heat a 2 quart saucepan over medium-high heat. Add poppy seeds and cook, swirling in the pan constantly, until lightly toasted and fragrant, about 3 minutes.
Add sugar, vinegar, mustard, salt, pepper, and onion with juice, and cook, stirring constantly, until sugar dissolves and mixture begins to simmer. Remove from heat and transfer to a blender. Add both oils, and blend until smooth; chill.
