For the garlic mayonnaise:
2 free-range egg yolks
1 heaped tsp Dijon mustard
½tsp salt
1tsp caster sugar
140ml Mellow Yellow Rapeseed Oil
2tsp white wine vinegar
1tsp lemon juice
2tsp water
1 clove crushed garlic
(Makes 200g)

For the coleslaw:
100g kale, shredded weight
50g beetroot, grated weight (approx 1 small beetroot)
1 tbsp homemade garlic mayonnaise


If you have a food processor, add your egg yolks, mustard, salt and sugar, or hand whisk together in a bowl. Once these ingredients are fully combined, very slowly pour in two thirds of your oil, vigorously mixing continuously as you slowly pour. Add the vinegar, lemon juice and water and mix well until fully combined. This is to loosen the mixture to make it easier to add the rest of the oil. Slowly add the rest of the oil, vigorously mixing continuously as you pour the oil in. Stir your crushed garlic through the mayonnaise. Store in a jar in the fridge and this will last for up to 5 days.

Add your kale, beetroot and 1 tbsp of garlic mayonnaise to a large bowl, mix together until the veg is fully coated in mayonnaise.

Serve and enjoy!
