Bill Granger's Christmas Coleslaw
At heart I’ll always be a Sydney boy, and whatever the weather, I crave salads. I need that crisp, refreshing, healthy-tasting hit and I find it hard to eat a meal that doesn’t have some kind of crunch. I always find an excuse to include a ‘slaw. Maybe it’s the buried memory of a youthful guilty pleasure…those little fast-food tubs of coleslaw!
I always make a version of coleslaw for the hot Australian summer Christmas. Now we are in England, I make a great winter version- a red cabbage salad with toasted pine nuts and fried onions rather than raw- that can again be made ahead of time and served at room temperature.
