I’ve been trying to eat more red vegetables, but I generally struggle to find interesting things to do with red cabbage. Last weekend I made a coleslaw with it, and threw in a handful of dried cranberries. The result was delicious, nutritious, and gluten free. What could be better?

Red Cabbage Slaw with Cranberries

Ingredients
  • 1/2 red cabbage, finely sliced
  • 1/2 cup tasty cheese, grated
  • 1 carrot, grated
  • handful parsley, roughly chopped
  • handful of snipped chives
  • 1/2 cup dried cranberries
  • 1/2 cup gluten free mayonnaise
Method

Combine all the ingredients in a large bowl and toss together

Mayonnaise

  • 1 large egg yolk
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons fresh lemon juice.
  • 1 teaspoon white wine vinegar.
  • 1/4 teaspoon Dijon mustard.
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt plus more to taste.
  • 3/4 cup light olive oil

Method

  • Use a stick blender to combine the egg yolk, lemon juice, vinegar and mustard
  • Continue to blend ingredients whilst adding the olive oil in a thin, steady stream. (I find this is easiest if I stand the container I’m making the mayonnaise in on a tea towel to stop it slipping.)
