  • 1 quarter small white cabbage (approx 200g/7oz) thinly shredded
  • 2 carrots (approx 150g/5oz) coarsely grated
  • 1 bunch of radishes thinly sliced
  • 1 mini cucumber (approx 100g/3.5 oz) thinly sliced
  • half a small bunch of chives thinly sliced or snipped with scissors


  • 4 tablespoon good quality mayo
  • 2 tablespoon Dijon mustard
  • 2 teaspoon honey
  • 2 teaspoon apple cider vinegar
  • salt & pepper to taste


  • Prepare all vegetables as per instructions above. Put them all in a large bowl (except for chives) and give it all a good mix with your hands. 
  • Mix all the dressing ingredients together. Taste and season with salt and pepper. 
  • Pour prepared dressing over the vegetables and mix well. Sprinkle with majority or all of chopped chives (leaving a sprinkle for garnish if you want) and give it one more quick mix. If you have time let the coleslaw stand for a bit to allow for the flavours to mingle but it's not necessary. Enjoy!

  • Feel free to use regular salad cucumber in this coleslaw.
