A dazzling coleslaw salad for your winter festive table. Red cabbage is mixed with apples, carrots, pecans and onions which is then dressed with a tangy mustard and nut vinaigrette - fabulous! Plus, the colours as well as the taste, is amazing! This goes so well with cold cuts, pies, tarts, quiches, buffets as well as being a wonderful supper or light lunch accompaniment. I do all the shredding and grating in my food processor, it is so easy and cuts down on time. You can of course grate and shred by hand - it will just take a little longer! I sometimes add semi-dried cranberries and grated beetroot - these are listed as optional exras. The pie shown in the photograph, is my Little Jack Horner's Christmas Chicken, Fruit and Stuffing Pie!, which I often serve with this winter slaw salad - they make a wonderful combination. (This recipe was posted to our personal preferences - with a light dressing and not a creamy or heavy dressing; if you like your salads with more dressing - please adjust the dressing quantities up!)
