healthy coleslaw

photo (8)So I’ve adapted this recipe from one of Mr Jamie O’s (you’ll probably see me referencing him quite a lot, he’s got quite good shortcuts and I’m impatient!). As you might have seen from my Instagram I make a lot of dishes which include grilled meat and a side of potato or rice. This means I often need a sauce or some sort of dip to go with it. However I don’t like buying things readymade, as I like to know what is going into my food, plus if I make it healthier I don’t need to hold back guzzling it all down! Plus, plus 🙂

Here is a recipe for some super easy, healthy coleslaw.

Serves: 2-3 people

Time: 5-10 mins (depends how quickly you chop!)


  • 1/3 of a cucumber
  • 1 medium carrot
  • ½ a red onion
  • 150g natural yoghurt
  • 1 ½ tbsps of multigrain mustard
  • 1 tsp lemon juice
  • Pepper


  1. Carrot ribbonsChop the onion into thin strips
  2. Either – chop the remaining vegetables into short, thinly sliced pieces OR chop the carrot in half and the cucumber into half and then slice down the middle. Then use a peeler to slice into ribbons
  3. Drop the chopped vegetables into a bowl
  4. Scoop all the yoghurt and mustard into the bowl
  5. Add lemon juice and mix
  6. Then voila! There you have it… Add pepper to taste

So easy right?! You would think it would taste just like raita, but the mustard really gives it a different flavour. Mmm…
