Lexington red slaw


"Salting the cabbage helps to leach the excess liquid and season the slaw," says Wall. "Getting rid of the excess water can only be a good thing - a soggy wet slaw is a very sad slaw indeed."

You'll need

1 kg whole cabbage, very thinly sliced on a mandolin 1½ tbsp sea salt   Tangy ketchup dressing 180 ml Heinz tomato sauce 115 ml apple cider vinegar 50 gm caster sugar 35 ml Southern-style hot sauce

Method

  • 01
  • Combine cabbage and salt in a bowl, toss to coat and stand in a colander to leach excess liquid (2 hours).
  • 02
  • Meanwhile, to make tangy ketchup dressing, whisk ingredients in a bowl to combine and season to taste with freshly ground black pepper.
