PEAR, APPLE AND CABBAGE SLAW 10 MINS
– 1 small red onion
– ½ small white or green cabbage
– 4 sticks of celery
– 2 eating apples
– 2 firm but ripe pears – juice of 1 lemon
– small bunch of parsley, leaves roughly chopped – 3 tbsp toasted pumpkin seeds or sunflower seeds – 3 tbsp toasted hazelnuts, roughly chopped
– 50g sour cream, crème fraiche or Greek yogurt – 50g mayonnaise
Peel and slice the onion thinly, and finely shred the cabbage, discarding the core. Finely slice the celery and keep hold of any leaves.
Halve and core the apples and pears, slicing them into matchsticks. Toss them in a little lemon juice to prevent them from browning.
Bring together all the ingredients, including the celery leaves if you have any, in a large mixing bowl – holding back a small handful of the chopped parsley, seeds and hazelnuts, and adding enough lemon juice to taste. Check the seasoning, adding salt and pepper if necessary.
Finish with the reserved parsley, seeds and nuts scattered on top.
