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."


  • 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
