Home-made coleslaw is quick, delicious and easy. It's just a case of grating / slicing the ingredients and mixing them with the dressing.


  • 1 small cabbage (red or white, depends on your preference)
  • 2 medium carrots
  • 1 medium apple
  • 1 handful of sultanas
  • 100ml natural yoghurt or mayonnaise
  • Optional extra - handful of mix seeds, to garnish


  1. Grate or finely slice (e.g. on a mandolin) the cabbage, carrots and apple.
    It's up to you whether you peel the carrots and apple.

  2. Mix with the yoghurt / mayonnaise and sultanas.

  3. Sprinkle with the fresh seeds, if using.

  4. Enjoy!

Notes & Variations on Coleslaw

For a more colourful coleslaw, this is great with red cabbage.

Try serving with some fresh rye bread, to make a complete meal.

For a more traditional coleslaw, swap the apple and sultanas for shredded raw onion. Still delicious, but not quite as good on the "smelly breath" front!

For extra protein, try sprinkling some lightly toasted pine nuts or sesame seeds on top of the finished coleslaw.

If you think you've made too much, store the ingredients MINUS the mayo / yoghurt in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 2 days.
