Vita-slaw with cabbage, carrots, and apples

Vita-slaw with cabbage, carrots, and apples

This is the remedy for January: a seasonal vitamin-packed slaw that was bold, flavourful and healthy.

We made this so many times this month, we lost count. Quick, tangy, and immune-boosting.

The trifecta of citrus, cabbage, and carrots this time of year really deliver that nutritious punch (hello, ☀️  vitamin C!). All mixed up with new harvest olive oil weaving flavours together and bringing out the very best for these ingredients at their peak.

Citizens of soil winter slaw recipe
Here are the ingredients you'll need:

  • cabbage
  • carrot
  • apple
  • ginger (fresh root, about a thumb size)
  • lemon or citrus of your choice (unwaxed as we finely chop the peel and put it in there too!)
  • herbs (we used spring onions and mint most times)
  • vinegar (obsessed with Willy's organic raw apple cider vinegar with honey & turmeric—it was MADE for this slaw)
  • our new harvest oil from Crete

Now grate everything and splash enough vinegar and oil that it’s properly soupy! Soak up leftover pools with bread. 🤌

And once you make a big batch of it, pop in in an air-tight jar and enjoy for up to a month! You are likely to find yourself adding it to anything you can think of! Some of the favourite ways we have used it include:...

Spring crab, asparagus, & egg salad

  This recipe from chef Lewis De Haas of Crispin was made for Citizens of Soil. He continues to bring us bright, colourful meals that really speak to the season. This dish is no exception, with delicate flavours and spring veg making its way to tables now. Here, Lewis gives us a classic egg & asparagus pairing, welcoming the hyper-seasonal green vegetable in a fresh combination which brings in a nice zestiness from the lemon and an indulgent, richness from the egg and EVOO.
