Fresh summer slaw

In the summer heat, traditional coleslaw with mayonnaise can feel a little heavy and go oily if left to stand. This crisp, lime dressed slaw with mint and coriander is light and refreshing and perfect with BBQ’ed or grilled meat and fish. Simple, tasty, quick and healthy! Scatter with a few pomegranate seeds and this is also great as a Christmas buffet salad.
