Method

  1. Shred the fennel thinly. Place in cold water for 1 hr until crisp, then drain and pat dry. Meanwhile, bring a large pan of water to the boil, then blanch the shredded cabbage, white cabbage first, in boiling water for 2 mins. Drain, then cool quickly under cold running water. Shake dry.
  2. Slice the celeriac thinly, then cut into sticks. Blanch in boiling water with half the lemon juice for 2 mins, then drain and cool under cold water. The veg can be prepared up to 2 days ahead and kept bagged in the fridge.
  3. When ready to serve, core and thinly slice the apple and toss with the remaining lemon juice. Beat together the mayonnaise, oil, vinegar and mustard and season to taste. Mix all the vegetables with the apple, parsley and spring onions in a big bowl, then mix in the dressing. Mound into a serving bowl and sprinkle with the seed and nut mix, if using.

My coleslaw went pink after blanching the red cabbage. I'll use these ingredients again but skip the blanching bit - I don't see that it is necessary

I made this last Christmas and everyone who tasted it said how wonderful it was and nice to ahve a variation on ordinary coleslaw. Considering making it again.
