I must admit if I didn't have a food processor I wouldn't have done this as lots of chopping/grating. However I found this to be a very tasty salad on its own or with some chicken or salmon. I think the pine nuts and seeds are a must as they really do add that bit extra, dressing is also lovely. Will make again.

Really tasty, I definitely recommend! I did add extra lemon juice as I felt it needed more sharpness though but a delicious (and easy) salad that will last for lunch all week.

Made this twice. Its low fat but full of flavour but will feed 6 if served as part of a meal.

Very good indeed. Probably the only salad without a meat element that I've ever really enjoyed. I'd suggest a bit more on the toasted pine nuts though (they really add a lot).

It does take a while to chop everything up, but worth it if you make enough. We had it on the side with jacket potato and cheese and then with some lightly battered fish and oven fries the following day. The dressing is divine, even though I'm not a fan of honey! Its a tasty dish and you can tell its good for you too!

Very labour intensive chopping and grating everything but worth the effort. Had this as part of a week long detox and found it very filling yet healthy

I attempted this using a handheld shredder then a cheese grater... a complete nightmare! Don't attempt this salad unless you have a blender or alot of patience!

Really good salad...great fresh flavours. I also served this with salmon, even my fussy teenager who doesn't eat salad finished off his plate!...

hooray, a reason to use the mandolin i bought! This is so easy to prepare and goes a long way. served with thai salmon there was plenty for 3 of us and a great packed lunch the next day. will do again, especially in the summer when its bbq time.

Delicious. Lovely and crunchy and the seeds give it a lovely nutty taste. I put a little less honey and a bit more lemon though as I find it a bit sweet otherwise. Making it again this evening to use the rest of the cabbage. yum yum

Really liked this and think it's something that I'll make over and over again.

Lovely, filling and delicious dressing. Totally enough to feed about six people though, so if you're halving the ingredients for two expect to have it for lunch the next day.

I remember making this salad years ago and it was gorgeous. Glad I have re-discovered it.

I made it exactly the same as the recipe except that I did not include linseeds because I could not find them here in Malta. Apart from that this is a really tasty and healthy recipe even my husband liked it. I was worried that he will not eat it because of the lemon juice, he hates the taste of the lemon in cooking, but he said that the ginger must have hidden the taste. Great, done it over and over again!!!!
