Meat Free Mondays!

COLESLAW or Kool Salade, as it was once known!

Endlessly variable, enviously easy and enormously good-for-you! Go raw and add this salad to your main meal at any time of the week!

The term “coleslaw” arose in the 18th century as an Anglicisation of the Dutch term “koolsla”, a shortening of “koolsalade”, which means “cabbage salad”. Here’s one of my versions of a kool salad…

coleslaw_goji berries_underthelimetree

for the Dressing ~
3 table spoons mayonaise
1 table spoon dijon mustard
1/2 tea spoon salt
a dash of raspberry vinegar (its the best, but you can use balsamic)
juice of 1/2 a lemon
blitz or hand mix until all the ingredients are well incorporated. adjust seasoning
for the raw salad ~ any combination and amount of
finely sliced green cabbage, grated carrot, grated celeriac. I tend to grate the cabbage first then sprinkle a little sugar & salt over to help soften it, then add the other ingredients
mix the sauce into your grated/sliced veg salad
top with pumpkin seeds, linseeds, dried cranberries, and goji berries


Variations:  coleslaw_goji berries_underthelimetree1

For the salad ~ finely sliced red cabbage,

grated apple, grated or cubed cheese.

For the topping ~ pine nuts, walnuts,

sunflower seeds, chopped dates…


…as I said, the variations are endless!

Get some goodness into today!


Bon Appétit!
