Food for the restless mind

Crunchy Coleslaw

When we saw red cabbage at the maketi the other day we were very excited. Mum’s friend Dagmar had been looking for red cabbage without much luck for some time, so we bought two thinking we would give one to her. Turns out she’d already bought a heap. So that left us with two red cabbages, and no idea what to do with them. Enter trusty ol’ Google. After a bit of time spent bouncing around different websites I had a rough idea of what to do. I then went into the kitchen to stare into the depths of the fridge, looking for inspiration. After a while I pulled out some veggies and fresh coriander, grabbing an apple from the bench for a bit of variety.

Hack up the cabbage, grate the apple and carrot, finely slice the onion, and chop up the coriander. Put it all in a bowl together and toss to combine.

In a separate bowl whisk together the olive oil, mayonnaise, white wine vinegar, and Dijon mustard. When everything is fully combined, pour over the cabbage mixture, and toss until everything is thoroughly coated.

Serve as a side, as a filling for sandwiches and wraps, or do what I did and add some chickpeas and homemade tortilla chips and eat it as a main.
