Christmas Slaw

Welcome to my post Christmas slump, where, after weeks of over eating, imbibing too much and general partying you feel stodgy, sluggish and blurgh.  Well I found a cure for that.  Following a meal of roast chicken and a truly great cauliflower and broccoli cheese bake our bodies finally gave up and said no more, so the following day a quick shufty at Good Food website bought us this little gem, super easy, super healthy, super colourful.

Christmas Slaw

Serves 6

2 carrots, matchstick cut
1/2 white cabbage, shredded
100g pecans, rough chopped
Bunch of spring onions, sliced
2 red peppers, deseeded and sliced

Toss around in a bowl and now for the magic ...

2 tbsp maple syrup
2 tsp Dijon mustard
8 tbsp olive oil
4 tbsp cider vinegar

Pop the ingredients into an old jam jar and shake away until fully mixed, then drizzle over your salad when ready to eat.

Told you it was simple, but it was just what we needed, served with the legs from the roast chicken the previous night it was a fresh, zingy and crunchy way to feeling less stodgy.  I can see this salad becoming a staple over the next couple of months as it will be a great accompanyment for many dishes.
