No surprises really, just a lightly dressed coleslaw garnished with a good handful of toasted sunflower seeds and a sprinkle of poppy seeds. It takes the dish to a whole new level….toasty, crunchy bits and a ‘nutty’ bite – it works perfectly as a side with the best spicy bean burgers and baked paprika fries.
