Ingredients
  

  • #For The Dressing#
  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise
  • 1/2 cup yogurt
  • 1/4 cup fresh lemon juice and orange juice
  • 2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1 tablespoon vinegar
  • Sea salt and freshly ground pepper
  • 1 hot red chilli, all seeds removed and finely chopped (optional)
  • #For The Salad#
  • 6 cups shredded cabbage
  • 1 large green or red pepper, cut into strips
  • 1 red onion, cut into quarters and thinly sliced
  • 1 large apple, cut into quarters, cored and thinly sliced
  • 1 large carrot, shredded
  • A generous handful of parsley leaves, chopped
  • 3 teaspoons grated lemon peel

Instructions
 

  • #A delicate blend of flavors combine to make this delicious salad. As a variation add 1/4 cup raisins and 1/2 cup coarsely chopped walnuts. This is a tasty accompaniment to grilled chicken or turkey.# Put all the ingredients for the dressing in a bowl and whisk with a fork. Taste and season well. Refrigerate until ready to use.
  • Next soak all of the cut up onion in a bowl of water for 5-10 minutes. Drain, rinse and pat dry. This will take away the raw taste of onions.
  • And finally combine cabbage, pepper, onion, carrot, parsley and lemon peel in a large bowl. Toss with enough dressing just before serving. The vegetables will then retain their crispness.
  • A little squeeze of lemon juice and a generous amount of chopped parsley over the top of the salad should just about do it.
