    Apple, Date & Walnut Coleslaw

    October 18, 2017

    Not your typical coleslaw. With crunch from the walnuts and a touch of sweetness from the dates, this is an easy standby salad that would be a great accompaniment for any bbq this summer. 


    handful each of dates and walnuts

    one apple grated

    half red cabbage & half normal cabbage sliced thin

    two carrots grated

    two sticks of celery sliced thin

    1/4 onion sliced and diced thin

    2 tablespoons of whole egg mayo (Woolworths has a great organic, no preservatives & additives version)

    dash of good quality olive oil

    salt and pepper to taste

    (I use this mandolin to cut up all my apple & vegetables) 



    1. Place the walnuts and dates in a food processor. Blitz for just a few seconds to break up the dates an walnuts. (You want to be able to see them – the best bit is the crunch of the walnuts and the chewiness of the dates’0
    2. Mix nuts and dates with the apple, mayo, oil and salt & pepper. Combine well. 
    3. Mix the dressing in with the vegetables. Often I use clean hands to make sure the vegetables are coated with the dressing. 
    4. Serve. If you are having it the next day, or later in the day, drizzle some lemon juice over the coleslaw to keep the apple and carrot from browning.

      A friend asked me why I hadn’t written anything about the vote happening in Australia in a few weeks. Thinking about it today, I guess I hadn’t written anything because it’s scary territory.…
