American inspired healthy ‘slaw

Coleslaw is fashionable again – but not the drippy, creamy awful one you get in packets at the supermarket or in the deli, oh no. This coleslaw is full of fresh crunchy produce and a healthy sauce that won’t leave you feeling bloated and unwell.

It is the perfect side dish for chicken and hamburgers.

What you’ll need for the coleslaw:

  • 2 carrots
  • 1 apple (preferably red as it is sweeter)
  • Handful of walnuts
  • 1 red onion
  • Small head of white or red cabbage (the red gives a wonderful colour)

What you’ll need for the dressing: 

  • Greek yoghurt
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 tsp wholegrain mustard
  • Salt and black pepper

What you’ll need to do:

  1. Simply grate the carrots, cabbage, onion and apple and mix in a bowl along with the walnuts.
  2. Mix the mustard and olive oil in a bowl and stir in the seasoning.
  3. Put in the greek yoghurt a tablespoon at a time until it’s as creamy as you desire.
