This salad is a nice change from the usual coleslaw and partners well with grilled or barbecued meat, meat loaf or a vegetarian roast.


  • Mix together the mayonnaise, cream or yogurt and curry powder or paste.
  • Put all the rest of the ingredients into a large bowl.
  • Add the dressing and mix well.

I don’t think this salad needs salt, but taste it and add a little if you wish.
