  • ¼ white cabbage head (¼ = around 200g)
  • 1 carrot
  • 1 pear
  • 1 bell pepper, red
  • 1 spring onions
  • 1 good handful walnuts
  • 1 small handful raisins

For the Dressing


  • If you get a whole cabbage, cut it into quarters and grab one for the salad. Do whatever you want with the rest.
  • Grate the cabbage.*
  • Grate the pear. You can grate the whole pear as is, no un-stoning necessary. I’m serious.
  • Grate the carrot.
  • Dice up the bell pepper and chop the spring onion.
  • Throw everything into a bowl, add the walnuts and raisins.
  • Get a small bowl, add the mustard, maple syrup, olive oil and vinegar. Give it a good whisk and taste test. If you like it mix it with the salad.
  • Add some salt, pepper and perhaps a little more vinegar - adjust to your taste.
  • Congratulations, the salad is ready!


*Why not shred the cabbage with a knife? Yep, it works, but just not as well: the water inside the cabbage doesn’t get released properly and leaves (haha) the salad quite dry.
Instead, if you grate the cabbage it becomes very moist and its flavour mixes much better with the rest of the salad. Check out both versions if you don’t believe me. It’s as different as day and night.
Don’t worry, grating cabbage is easier than you think. Make it happen.
