Cabbage and carrots with anchovy dressing

Serves: 4
Preparation time: 25 minutes


Half small red cabbage, finely shredded Half small white cabbage, finely shredded 2 large carrots, peeled and finely sliced 4 spring onions, trimmed and finely sliced 300 ml milk 4-6 cloves garlic, peeled 3-4 anchovies 2 tbsp red or white wine vinegar 6 tbsp extra-virgin olive oil 1 tsp Dijon mustard 1 cup of sunflower seeds (or you can mix few kinds of seeds like pumpkin, sesame and sunflower)

Half a bunch of fresh flat leaf parsley


Slice the cabbage, carrots and spring onions and put them in a large bowl.

Pour the milk in a pan on a medium heat with the garlic and anchovies and bring to simmer. Let it cook for about 10 minutes until the garlic cloves are soft, then pour everything into a blender. Add the vinegar, olive oil and mustard and blend for a few minutes then taste it. It should be quite sour but if it’s too sour for your taste, add a bit of oil to balance it. Season with freshly ground sea salt and pepper then pour over the sliced vegetables. Toss well.

Heat the seeds in a dry pan for a few minutes until warm then scatter them over the salad. Sprinkle over the parsley then serve it immediately.
