Trees of Transition

Planting seeds of hope throughout our world through sharing photography and thoughts on teaching, cooking, and life transitions.

Asian-Inspired Sweet Coleslaw




A neighbor taught us how to make this amazing coleslaw! Your tastebuds dance with the mixture of pineapple, pepper, and soy. The first time we made it, two of us ate the whole bowl!


1 head red cabbage, thinly sliced

1 poblano pepper, julienned

1 jicama, julienned

7 green onions, chopped

2 red peppers, julienned


Sauce:  (All of these ingredients to taste!)

2-3 Tblsp. Lime juice

1 tsp. fresh lime zest

4-5 cloves garlic (or to taste)

4-6 Tblsp. Soy sauce

A dash of sriacha sauce, if you like more heat

2/3 cup pineapple juice or crushed pineapple

9 Tblsp. Rice vinegar

3 Tblsp. Seseme oil (The vinegar and oil have a 3:1 ratio)

½ cup. Brown sugar

Mix together the sauce ingredients to taste (it has a sweet, Thai, Asian flavor that you can make hotter or sweeter to your liking.)

Prepare your vegetables, and chill until ready to serve. Mix with the sauce and serve. Enjoy!

Recipe based on a dish made by Chris Moore (Stephen Schuh’s neighbor).

Hello Friends, A curious, kind, practical, and energetic writer, wife, mother, and teacher is one way to describe me. I enjoy thinking about transitions--in schools, churches, families, relationships, and even countries. I'm passionate about learning, and I love working with people. Stop by often to see which kind of transition I'm thinking about, and I would appreciate hearing your thoughts. Peace! ~Mary Hope
