Retro Slaw Recipe

Retro Slaw Recipe

The combination of white cabbage, carrot and shallot dripping in vinegary mayo is the stuff of horrors, but a homemade slaw is miles apart and a billion times better.

Serves 1 large salad


  • 1 white cabbage thinly sliced (a mandolin gets it extra fine)
  • 3 tbsp mayonnaise/creme fraiche
  • 2 carrots, peeled and grated
  • 1 tsp white wine vinegar/lemon juice
  • 2 shallots, finely diced
  • Salt and pepper


  1. Mix all the veg together, and just before serving add the mayo and vinegar. Otherwise it will start to go sloppy and not so nice.
