Winter slaw with grilled lamb chops

Winter slaw with grilled lamb chops

This is a fresher, lighter version of your usual mayonnaise covered coleslaw that can be made ahead and stored in the fridge. You can also serve this slaw with steak, grilled salmon or a jacket potato

  • Preparation: 25 mins
  • Cooking: 10 mins
  • Serves: 4

What you need:

  • For the winter slaw:
  • 1/2 red cabbage, finely shredded
  • 1/2 white cabbage, finely shredded
  • 4 carrots, peeled and grated
  • 1 British red onion, peeled and thinly sliced
  • 1 green apples, cored and thinly sliced
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice
  • 2 tbsp dill, chopped
  • Handful lightly toasted pine nuts

For the dressing:

  • 2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
  • 1 tsp caster sugar
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons walnut oil
  • 3 tablespoons red wine vinegar

For the lamb chops:

  • 1 tsp cayenne pepper
  • 2-3 tbsp oil
  • 8 lamb chops
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper

What you do:

  1. Make the dressing by mixing all the ingredients together in a jar - giving them all a good shake. The dressing can be made ahead.
  2. Place the shredded cabbages, carrots and onion in a large mixing bowl and mix well. Toss the apple in the lemon juice and add to the vegetables along with the dill. Add the pine nuts just before serving.
  3. Add the dressing and mix well, allowing the flavours to infuse together.
  4. For the lamb chops, mix together the cayenne pepper and the oil until well combined. Rub the lamb chops all over with the mixture, then season, to taste, with salt and freshly ground black pepper.
  5. Heat a griddle pan over a medium heat; add the lamb chops and cook for 2-3 minutes on each side, or until golden-brown on both sides and cooked, but still pink in the middle.
  6. Serve the lamb chops with a serving of the winter slaw.
