Acadia's Peach Cole Slaw

I had another large head of cabbage to contend with this week, so I decided to make another cole slaw, but with a twist. I added in some local peaches and some other ingredients from the share (zucchini, spring onions and one jalapeno pepper). With the addition of a creamy dressing mostly made of yogurt and some walnuts and raisins, it reminded me of a cross between a Waldorf salad and a sweet cole slaw. I hope you try making my special recipe and enjoy it!

Combine the following ingredients in a large bowl:
1/2 head of cabbage, diced
2 or 3 peaches, diced
1 yellow zucchini, shredded
1/2 green zucchini, shredded
2 carrots, shredded
1/2 to 1 jalapeno (to taste)
2 spring onions, diced (heads only)
1/2 c. raisins
1/2 c. chopped walnuts, toasted

In a separate bowl, combine the following ingredients for the dressing:
3/4 cup plain yogurt
1/4 c. mayo
4 T. apple cider vinegar
2 T. agave nectar
juice from 1/2 lemon
white pepper and salt to taste

Pour dressing over cole slaw ingredients and toss to coat completely. Refrigerate for at least an hour to marinate.
