This cabbage and radish slaw came about on receiving an abundance of beautiful freshly grown garden radishes from my brother, Paul.

The low fat dressing is made lighter by using half yogurt combined with reduced fat mayonnaise and spiced up with just a little cider vinegar.

I didn’t want an over-powering dressing to take away the magical crunchy texture and fresh taste of the radishes here, so I made, and used, as little dressing as possible.

You might want to make more of the dressing depending on your taste buds, or the amount of cabbage and radish slaw you’re making! The recipe is pretty versatile.

As a fresh root vegetable, radishes are a great source of vitamin C, contain next to no cholesterol, are low in fat and contribute towards your daily dietary fibre requirement, as well as your 5 a day!

Not only that, they contain an anti-oxidant compound called sulforaphane. Studies suggest that sulforaphane has a proven role against prostate, breast, colon and ovarian cancers by virtue of its cancer-cell growth inhibition, and cyto-toxic effects on cancer cells.

This cabbage and radish slaw recipe wasn’t on the planner. In fact it never existed at all, it just came about.

Spontaneity! Whoa, steady there Neil, you’re rocking the boat a bit!

No, but seriously I’ve been taking a container of this to work every day this week and spooning the slaw into wholemeal pitta breads for my lunch – so tasty!

How is your weekend looking?

Lady Lynne and I are so excited to be heading off into the hills again with Catherine and Liam, who we recently walked Glen Doll, Jocks Road To Davys Bourach with. We plan to walk some more of the hills around that same area again, and we are staying at the Glen Clova bunkhouse on Friday and Saturday night.

Food wise, I’m looking forward to cooking and dishing up my chorizo and lentil stew for everyone in the bunk house kitchen on Friday night, washed down by a couple of glasses of red! Then eating in the hotel restaurant on Saturday night, after the day’s walking, and washing that down also with a couple of glasses of red. 😉

Well, here’s to a good weekend ahead. I’ll be looking to bring, hopefully some pics from our weekend. As usual with Scotland, that’s weather permitting!

Finally today as its Thursday let’s do our usual link up with Ms Spoons at Running with Spoons here to share with you what’s going on over there! Have a good one!

  1. Why can’t people make more slaws like this? This has juuuust enough tang and creaminess (like a traditional southern slaw) + vinegar based slaw’s slightly sour and tart bite.

    I love you. You can tell Lynne and Alex. They’ll understand.

      I couldn’t and wouldn’t take away that delicious freshness of the garden radishes by adding tons of mayo! That would have been a waste of radishes as fresh as you can get, from my brother, plus he would have been devastated. It would have been similar to pouring tomato ketchup over a freshly baked muffin! 😉

  2. After getting my nutritional therapy cert I can 100% agree that cabbage is fantastic for our health! I’ve been on a cabbage kick too! I bought a lot of heids of it so I should give this a try! YUM!

      Agreed regarding cabbage Erin! I think it’s yet another vegetable we have an abundance of here that we should be eating more of for it’s nutritional qualities.

      In fact I seem to remember being fed it a lot when I was younger, fresh from my parents garden.

      Let’s hear it for cabbage recipes! 😀

  3. this looks so refreshing. Can we have a slaw party? I bring mine to your house! haha.

    • neil@neilshealthymeals.com says:

      A slaw party eh? I like the sound of that. In fact I’m up for any kind of party, particularly food related ones! 😀

  4. Thank you for following my blog (I know, I’m a little late!) I’m making a delightful slaw this weekend, the radishes are a wonderful ingredient and it looks like we’ve finally got them from Ontario!

      You have a wonderful blog and lots of amazing delicious looking recipes that I just loved Eva!

      Thank you for taking the time to read and comment on mine!

      I’ve got lots of other radish salad ideas up my sleeve if I’m lucky enough to get more radishes from my bother. Hope you have a fantastic weekend, I’d love to know what kind of slaw you have. 🙂

  5. Neil – I love that you didn’t use too much dressing in this refreshing salad! Over here in Atlanta, GA -it’s warm outside but freezing inside where I work and I wish I had some of your chorizo and lentil stew to warm up!

      Thank you Shashi. 🙂

      Just been looking at our weather forecast for the weekend, in the area of Scotland that we’re going walking. It looks like it’s going to be a wet one, so that chorizo and lentil stew may be well needed to warm us up, if we get soaked up the hills. 😉

  6. I ADORE cabbage… Sadly, it does NOT adore me back 🙁

      Oh no, Gigi 🙁 I’m sorry to hear that. I’m not sure if you might be able to substitute with maybe celery or something similar, or lettuce?
