Coconut Slaw

Sometimes all you need is a little bit of this and a little bit of that to create what I consider ‘magic’ in a bowl and this recipe is all that!  It steps up the old and traditional into modern, tasty and moreish.   This is what I’m all about, packs a massive punch with flavour, colourful and goes with everything. Er, no love, not your new shoes!!!


Prep Time: 15 mins

Cook time: None

Serves: 4


1 cup cabbage, shredded
1/2 cup carrot, grated
1/2 cup red cabbage, shredded
1/2 red onion, finely diced
handful coriander, finely chopped
handful mint, finely chopped
zest of a lemon & a little juice (to taste)
1/4 cup fresh or 1/2 cup shredded coconut

1 tbsp thick greek yoghurt
2 tbsp coconut cream
1 tsp lemon juice
1 tsp hot mustard
salt and white pepper
Pinch brown sugar
chopped nuts (optional)


In a large bowl mix together the slaw ingredients, toss well.

In a small jug whisk together the dressing ingredients, taste and season.

When ready to serve, pour over the dressing mix well, sprinkle with chopped nuts and eat immediately.

Fabulous with anything spicy like my jerk chicken.
