Evolution Organics winter slaw

I made this recipe a few weeks ago when I had a large amount of cabbage and was at a loss as how to use it. I decided to make a firm favourite: coleslaw. Coleslaw is a classic side dish and can be made healthier by packing a good amount of fresh vegetable and herbs and using yogurt instead of mayonnaise.

Cabbage has high levels of Vitamin C (keeps cells and the immune system in tip top shape) and Vitamin K which is essential to building strong bones, preventing heart disease and much more – often we forget about Vitamin K when we shouldn’t.

Another ingredients that I have added is the humble but powerful walnut. Walnuts are a powerhouse of nutrition. Walnuts are also rich in antioxidants, including being a very good source of manganese and copper. Walnuts can also help you get better sleep as they have an effect on melatonin production.

Winter Slaw (serves 4 to 6)

½ red cabbage, sliced finely
½ white cabbage, sliced finely
2 carrots, grated

1-2 celery sticks, chopped
1 apple,  skin on - cubed
1 cup organic Greek yogurt

1 tablespoon fresh of each: dill, mint and parsley, chopped

1/3 cup walnuts, chopped

Himalayan salt & pepper to taste

1. Prepare all of the vegetable and fruit and put them in a large bowl
2. In another bowl mix together the yogurt, mustard, lemon juice and fresh herbs and add to the cabbage mix
3. Add chopped walnuts and season to taste.
