Daylesford Slaw with Chilli, Ginger & Tamari Dressing

  • 30 min
  • Easy

Prepared with lots of fresh herbs, tossed in a thick Asian dressing and topped with toasted cashew nuts, it's packed with flavour and crunch. 



3 medium carrots
3 raw medium beetroots
1/4 of a small red cabbage
1/4 of a small white cabbage
1 red pepper, seeds removed and finely sliced
1/2 a red onion, finely sliced
1 small bunch of fresh mint, leaves roughly chopped
1 small bunch of fresh coriander, leaves only
25g cashew nuts, lightly toasted in a dry frying pan and roughly chopped
1 red chilli pepper, thinly sliced (optional)


100ml dark soy sauce or tamari
100g clear honey
juice of 4 large limes
1 tablespoon caster sugar
2 cloves of garlic, crushed & finely chopped
2cm piece of fresh root ginger, peeled & finely chopped
75g cashew nuts

To make the dressing, put all the ingredients, apart from the cashew nuts, into a small pan. Bring to a gentle simmer, stirring constantly, and cook for 2 minutes, then remove from the heat and leave to cool.

Put the cashew nuts into a food processor, then add the cooled dressing and blitz until smooth. Keep to one side.

If you have a mandolin, use the attachment that cuts into curls to shred the carrots, otherwise use a flat mandolin with a medium attachment to shred them lengthways into spaghetti-like strips. Alternatively, cut them into very fine, long julienne stripes with a sharp knife or peeler, or grate coarsely on a standard box grater. Put the shredded carrots into a large bowl. Peel and shred the beetroots in the same way and add to the carrots.

Remove any damaged outer leaves from the cabbages, as well as the central core, and discard. Shred the cabbages very finely and add to the bowl along with the finely sliced red pepper and red onion. Add the mint coriander leaves and toasted cashews and toss lightly.

To serve, drizzle the raw slaw with the dressing, toss lightly, top with slices of red chilli if using, and tumble on to a serving platter.

Make a big batch and keep it in the fridge for lunches.
