Absolutely loved this recipe. First time taste of coleslaw for my boyfriend and he was well impressed.

I thought 2 tbsp of the dijon mustard was way overpowering for the coleslaw and unfortunately so did my guests..

Really delicious! I particularly loved the taste of the dark soy sauce on the toasted seeds. I added a bit of coriander (because I love it!) and also used half the amount of mustard specified which turned out to be just right. This does make huge amounts of coleslaw so maybe half the amounts if there's only one or two people in the household.

This is a really good coleslaw, like another contributor said I find coleslaw labour intensive too but whizzed through my magimix in a few mins and voila, a lovely side dish to pork pies, picnic pies, tarts and quiche. Tamari is available in SAINSBURYS, if you can't find it use dark soy sauce insted.

I made this a few weeks ago for friends coming to lunch, I doubled the quantity thinking that I might have some left over for the next day or two !!! Not a chance, the whole lot went in one go and everybody wanted this recipe. I served it with Picnic Pie (on this site) cheeses, homemade chutney and crusty bread .... it was a big success ... thank you

I don't generally go much for labour intensive both to prepare and to eat. I whizzed this up in the food processor and couldn't get enough of it. It does make a massive heap, but undaunted I demolished it single-handedly in 2 days whilst feeling virtuous about the amount of: raw food, seed & nuts, vegetables I was eating :o)

I discovered this recipe last autumn, and I LOVE it. It's a really tasty twist on the standard coleslaw. I didn't source tamari, just dry fried the seeds/nuts, and used Greek yogurt - it is a firm favourite with family and friends.

WICKED! The colours, the taste - impressed my friend through the roof. I couldn't fin a celeriac so I put in some more carrots and followed that advice on only one mustard scoop. I added toasted soy beans and toasted broad beans, spiced with garam masala, tumeric and fish sauce. Absolutely great.

This was delicious. I only put 1 tsp of mustard and it was just right (I felt that 2 tbsp would be far too strong). I also added thinly sliced fennel and a dash of single cream. Really nice change from standard coleslaw.
