Ingredients

80ml extra virgin olive oil

3 tbsp sour cream

3 tbsp quality mayonnaise

Juice of 1 lemon

30ml red wine vinegar

1 1/2 tbsp castor sugar

3 tsp salt

Freshly ground black pepper

1 small savoy cabbage, core cut out, outer leaves removed, leaves separated

1/2 red onion, finely diced

2 granny smith apples, skin on, sliced into matchsticks

4 tsp caraway seeds, ground lightly

Method

In a large bowl, combine the oil, sour cream, mayonnaise, lemon juice and vinegar. Season generously with sugar, salt and heaps of black pepper and set aside.

Bring a large pot of water to the boil and salt it well, add the leaves of the cabbage and cook for 2 minutes. Lift out of the water with tongs and plunge into iced water to refresh, then drain in a colander.

Slice the cabbage into 1cm-wide ribbons. Toss the cabbage, onion and apple with the dressing and half the caraway seeds, and mix with your hands once or twice. Pile on a plate and sprinkle over more caraway seeds.

Drink: Riesling.
