Delicious winter slaw perfect with any meal
- a handful red cabbage
- a handful grated carrot or substitute for grated beetroot
- 1/2 bulb fennel
- a handful hazelnuts
For the dressing
- 2 tsp Dijon mustard
- 4 tsp pomegranate molasses or 1.5 tsp sugar
- 5 tsp balsamic vinegar
- salt and freshly ground black pepper
- 100 ml olive oil
- 1/2 orange juice (optional)
Finely shred the red cabbage (as much as you need, a handful is enough for 2).
Grate some carrot - again just a handful is probably enough. You could substitute grated beetroot here if needed.
Very finely shred half a fennel bulb - a mandolin is useful here.
Toast a handful of hazelnuts. Do this by putting them in a dry pan over a medium heat and waiting until they begin to smell toasty and delicious. Keep them moving around in the pan. Don’t take your eye off them - it’s so easy to forget and burn them! Then chop them up a bit.
Chop some parsley. Mix it all together.
For the dressing
Mix the mustard, molasses/sugar, salt & pepper & vinegar together. Then slowly whisk in the oil. Adjust seasoning to taste.
Add as much dressing as you want to the salad - you’ll probably have some left over.
Squeeze half an orange over the whole thing if you like for extra zing.
