The perfect Autumn slaw.

‘Even if I knew that tomorrow the world would go to pieces, I would still plant my apple tree.  Martin Luther.

Just thought I’d share a very simple recipe to help you use up some more of the Brambly apples in your garden.

Bramley apples are low in calories and a good source of vitamin A, C and B.


200g raw white cabbage leaves very finely shredded.

1 large Brambly apple, sliced thinly and cut into very fine strips.

1 tsp wholegrain mustard.

1 tsp dijon mustard.

3 heaped tbsp greek yoghurt.

3 heaped tbsp mayonnaise.

1.5 tsp vinegar.

1.5tbsp finely chopped chives.

Perfect served with mackerel.

Preparation Method:

  1. Gently mix the mayonnaise and greek yogurt with the mustard and vinegar in a mixing bowl.  Add the chives and shredded cabbage then season with a little salt.  Leave to stand for 10-15 minutes to soften.
  2. Slice the apple very finely, then cut very thinly and stir through the coleslaw.
  3. This Brambly apple coleslaw is beautiful served with mackerel warmed gently under the grill.  Or simply on top of a steaming hot baked potato with cheese.
  4. Arrange the coleslaw on a plate as you please.  Any leftovers can be used in sandwiches or added to a salad the following day.
