Red Cabbage & Apple Slaw

Here's my second delicious summer salad to go with the burgers for the summer party cookalong.

This is quite possibly the tastiest way to eat red cabbage, which my mum discovered when dealing with a glut of red cabbage from her weekly veg bag. The sweetness of the apple works really well with the flavour of the red cabbage whilst the garlic somehow brings it all together.

Even if you don't normally like red cabbage I would encourage you to give this a go, it is very, very tasty.

Ingredients
Red Cabbages
½ head
Apples (eating apples)
3
Garlic
2 - 3 cloves
Oranges (juice)
½
Lemon (juice)
1
Honey
1 tsp
Olive Oil
3 tbsp
Salt & Pepper
to season
Sesame Seeds
2 tbsp
Other Requirements

A chopping board, a sharp knife, a blender, small frying pan.

Take a half a head of cabbage and using your sharp knife, finely shred it by cutting it in thin slices and then chopping the slices.

Put the cabbage into your serving bowl. Now peel, core and quarter your apples and grate them into the serving bowl on top of the red cabbage.

Now to make the dressing. In your blender put the two cloves of garlic roughly chopped, the juice of ½ an orange and 1 lemon.

Add in the olive oil and honey. Season with a little salt and pepper and blend together.

The final element of this salad is the toasted sesame seeds. Put the two tablespoons of seeds into a dry frying pan and heat until they start to turn golden brown. As soon as they start to change colour take them off the heat and add them to the salad bowl. You have to keep an eye on the sesame seed whicle they're toasting as they can burn very easily.

Pour over the dressing and mix into the rest of the salad, until everything is coated.

Serve immediately or you can make it ahead of time and leave it in the fridge until it's needed.
