Apple Slaw

This recipe is just the right accompaniment to all things pork. It’s fantastic to take along to barbecues and a good base to which you can add different herbs or other ingredients handy in your pantry or fridge.

Prep Time: 15 minutes

Cook time: (Chill Time) 10 minutes

Serves: 8


1 tbsp sesame seeds
½ small white cabbage, thinly sliced
2 apples cut thinly
1 carrot, grated
3 tbsp parsley, finely chopped (extra for garnish)
1 tbsp sage, finely chopped (extra for garnish)
½ lemon, zest only
4 small gherkins, thinly sliced
1 red onion, thinly sliced

½ cup mayonnaise
2 tbsp apple cider vinegar
2 tbsp runny honey
1 tsp white pepper, ground


Scatter your sesame seeds in a large frying pan over a medium heat and toast gently until fragrant and coloured, about 2 minutes. Keep shaking the pan and don’t leave them for a second, otherwise they will burn. When golden, remove from the heat and allow to cool.

In a large bowl toss the remaining ingredients together, whisk the dressing ingredients and just before serving, dress your slaw.

Serve: Sprinkle over your toasted sesame seeds and garnish with extra herbs. Serve it alongside my Sweet ‘n’ Spicy Jerk Pork… perfection!
