Christmas-style coleslaw


  • 500g wedge green cabbage
  • 350g purple or red cabbage
  • 1 carrot, grated
  • Mustard dressing:
  • 1 tablespoon wholegrain mustard
  • 2 tablespoons white wine vinegar
  • 4 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper


Finely slice cabbage and place in a large salad bowl. Add grated carrot.

To make dressing, combine all ingredients in a glass jar with a screw top lid and shake well.

Toss dressing through salad just before serving.


  • An easy to prepare and tasty salad that will feed the Christmas-day horde. And look at all the pretty colours of Christmas in the salad bowl!
  • I used my vegetable peeler to ‘grate’ the carrot into nice long strips.
  • The salad can be made hours in advance, kept covered in the fridge, with the dressing added just before serving.
