What You Will Need:

Hellmann's Mayonnaise200g

1 - Remove any bruised or damaged outer cabbage leaves. Halve through the stem, remove the dense core with a sharp knife and discard. Put cut side down onto a chopping board and slice as finely as possible into thin shreds.

2 - Grate the carrots on a box grater to shred coarsely. Tip into the bowl. Finely slice the onion as thin as possible, and add to the bowl with the other veg.

3 - Add the mustard, mayonnaise, and vinegar: season well, and taste for sharpness and creaminess. Add more vinegar if you like. Mix everything well with a large spoon. Stir so all the veg gets coated lightly in the dressing.

Note: It can be covered and chilled for up to 3 days. Mix well before serving.
