This was delicious...crunchy,tasty,filling and healthy! Had to change the dressing slightly so used sweet chilli & ginger sauce instead of honey and ginger and a little sesame oil instead of all the olive oil...turned out great.

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).

Delicious - we had it with hot smoked salad

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

I absolutely love this, it's really filling and crunchy.

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.

made this on sunday for work lunches mon -wed.. didn't bother with the seeds, mostly to keep the kcals down... good summer way to use up the red cabbage we keep getting in our veg box!
