Carrot, apple & orange coleslaw

This is a fruity version of the traditional coleslaw. Great for children and a nice start to Spring. Taken from ’5 a day fruit & veg book’ from Hermes House.

500g carrots, finely grated
2 eating apples,
1 tbsp lemon juice
1 large orange
3 tbsp olive oil
4 tbsp sunflower oil
1 garlic clove crushed
4 tbsp natural yoghurt
1 tbpsp chopped fresh herbs – parsley, chives, dill
Salt & freshly ground black pepper

1. Put the carrots in a large serving bowl. Quarter the apples, remove the core, then slice thinly. Sprinkle with the lemon juice to stop discolouration then add to the carrots.

2. Using a sharp knife, remove the peel and pith from the orange and then separate into segments.

3. To make the dressing, place all the ingredients in a jar with a tight fitting lid and shake vigorously to emulsify.

4. Just before serving pour the dressing over the salad and toss together well.
