This refreshing, zingy salad is a celebration of red cabbage. It’s a wonderful accompaniment to an outdoor summer feast. For something a little richer, try this beetroot and cabbage coleslaw.


  • 3 plump garlic cloves, crushed
  • 1 tbsp Dijon mustard
  • 1 tbsp red wine vinegar
  • 3 tbsp extra-virgin olive oil
  • 450g raw baby beetroot
  • 100g shredded red cabbage
  • 1 small bunch spring onions, shredded
  • 2 tbsp chopped fresh parsley
  • 1 tbsp poppy seeds


  1. Put the garlic, mustard and vinegar into a bowl and whisk well. Gradually whisk in the olive oil and season generously. Set aside.
  2. Peel the beetroot and grate using a grater or food processor. Put into a bowl with the shredded cabbage and spring onions, parsley and poppy seeds. Drizzle over the dressing and toss together using two forks.
