Did you know you can eat swede raw? It’s a crisp vegetable with a peppery flavour that works great shredded in slaws or remoulade, just like celeriac or cabbage. Here, we’ve combined nutty tahini and fresh dill for a top-notch dressing and some apple slices for sweetness. It’s a great ‘slaw recipe for the winter months.
