Posts Tagged ‘home-grown red cabbage’

I’ve only just noticed that any of the recipes I’ve posted recently have been ‘sweet’, so it is definitely time for a ‘savoury’ one 🙂

Harvesting is going on here at a wonderful pace.  We have some gorgeous, gorgeous veg coming out of the tunnel.

I’m loving the squash – but more about them later.  Is there anything nicer in the world than fruit and vegetables straight from the garden.

Home-grown Red Cabbage

We’re also enjoying delicious red cabbage.

As the weather has been so so good – hot during the day and warm in the evenings – we are also not cooking as much.

So this red cabbage slaw was invented to go with a couple of dinners.  I have served it with our pork burgers and pork ribs.

A half head certainly made enough for four generous helpings.


  • Red Cabbage
  • 2 Spring Onions – or a large bunch of chives
  • 3 tbsp. Mayonnaise
  • 2 tbsp. Olive Oil
  • 1 tbsp. Lemon Juice
  • Salt and Pepper


Finely slice the red cabbage across the leaves – avoiding the solid white core.

Finely slice the spring onions, including the green tops (or alternatively a large bunch of chives works well too).

Mix the cabbage and spring onions together in a large bowl.

Red Cabbage Slaw

In a separate bowl mix the dressing ingredients and mix together and mix into your chopped cabbage.
