Winter ‘Slaw

Winter is the perfect time to ring the changes with coleslaw. All those cabbages are at their best and the wintery feel gives the perfect excuse to use different flavours.

Red cabbage, spiked with green coriander, white spring onions and crunchy sunflower seeds make a tasty crunchy side that is – in the words of Michel Roux Jr. – ‘pretty as a picture’ (incidentally, that scores one point in Masterchef bingo).

Winter Slaw (dairy-free, nut-free, sesame-free, gluten-free, can be egg-free if you use egg-free mayo, vegetarian and vegan)

    I just found a mayonnaise that is safe for our use and have been looking for recipes to try it out on. I think I’ll try this one!
