Method

  1. Using a large knife, shred the cabbage and place in a large bowl with the carrot, apple and spring onions.
  2. Whisk together the mayonnaise, vinegar and oil. Season then toss with the salad. Serve or see our suggestions, below right.
  3. To make with roast chicken, snip the stalks from a punnet of mustard cress and stir half into the coleslaw with the wholegrain mustard. Divide between plates then scatter the roast chicken (leftovers or shop bought) on top. Sprinkle with the remaining cress and serve.
  4. To make with marinated chicken, heat the grill to high. Tear the leaves from a large bunch basil and scatter half of them into the coleslaw. Chop the rest and mix with a pinch ground fenugreek or coriander, zest and juice of the lime, olive oil and salt and pepper to taste. Rub the chicken breasts in the lime mix (leave to marinate for 10 mins if time), then grill for 6 mins on each side until golden and cooked through. Thickly slice and serve on top of the coleslaw.

Simple and tasty. Try adding sunflower seeds and dried cranberries.

Great recipe for BBQs and lunch side dish. Have been asked for the recipe more than once. Must admit I usually slice rather than grate the carrot and apple
