Refreshingly Simple Sweetheart Cabbage and Celery Slaw

Serves 4 | Prep time 10 minutes

A simple fresh slaw can lift almost any dish, cutting through with acidity, and salads don’t come much simpler than this sweetheart cabbage and celery slaw. Pairing great with meat dishes, fish or as an extra salad for a lunchbox, this super simple slaw packs a zingy citrus punch and a refreshing crunch. We recommend serving this slaw with our 3-course Seder Plate-inspired menu (perhaps adding in some chopped spring onions if they feature on your Seder table). And if you’re panicking about the cost of using so much mayonnaise on a salad this Pesach, try our easy, delicious and budget-friendly 5-minute Kosher for Passover mayo recipe or explore some of our other KLP salad dressings.

If preparing ahead, keep dry ingredients and dressing separate until ready to serve. Once combined, it will keep refrigerated for 2 days, ready to be enjoyed with other meals. Extremely versatile, we suggest trying it with brisket, chicken or lamb dishes.
