Isobel’s Coleslaw

  • Finely shredded red cabbage (1/4 is usually more than enough)
  • Julienned carrot, if you don’t have a slicer, finely sliced into strips or coarsely grated will also be fine (2 large)
  • Green apple with skin, finely sliced into strips (2 large)
  • Coriander leaves (optional)
If you want to pre-prepare the apple, put the strips into a bowl of cold water with a little squeeze of lemon juice and a sprinkle of salt to stop it turning brown.  Store in the frideg and drain before using.

Dressing:
  • Fresh lemon juice – 1/4 cup
  • Olive oil (same amount as lemon juice) – 1/4 cup
  • Salt and pepper to taste

Isobel’s Beetroot Salad
