  • Peel and mandolin/grate the celeriac – wear a pair of gloves to protect your hands. This takes quite a few minutes to do, but it is worth it. You can use an electric food processor with a mandolin or grating blade which speeds things up considerably.
  • Slice the cabbage very finely, the thinner the better.
  • Combine all the salad ingredients and mix up the dressing. Drizzle the dressing over the salad.
  • You can eat the slaw immediately if you like your cabbage crunchy or wait 30 minutes for the cabbage to soften and the flavours to infuse.


  • Store in the fridge for up to 2 days.
  • Add feta cheese or grilled halloumi to make a more substantial salad.
  • Nut free: omit the pecan nuts or swap to sunflower seeds, sesame seeds or poppy seeds.
