Dinner Party Solutions: Apple, Cabbage and Caraway Salad

Page copy protected against web site content infringement by Copyscape

This is another one of those dishes that can be made a few hours in advance so you can have guests come over early for drinks without any need to fuss over the food. It’s a kind of grown-up coleslaw, made healthier with yogurt instead of mayonnaise. Carrot is a good idea too, but only if you enjoy the extra work.



100 ml yogurt
¼ cabbage
2 apples
lemon juice
2 tsp English mustard
1 tsp caraway seeds, or to taste


  1. Drain the yogurt over a sieve for at least two hours.
  2. Finely slice the cabbage. Dry thoroughly in a salad spinner.
  3. Finely slice the apples and toss in the lemon juice to stop it from browning.
  4. Combine the sliced cabbage and apple with the yogurt, mustard and caraway seeds. Mix thoroughly and season generously with salt and pepper.
  5. Leave it in the fridge for an hour or more to allow the flavours to mingle.

Serves 8.
