  • Digital Scales
  • Zester/Grater
  • Large Mixing Bowl
  • Food Processor
  • Sharp Knife
  • Peeler


  • 600 grams white cabbage stalk centre removed.
  • ½ large cucumber
  • 1 large red pepper
  • ½ large yellow pepper
  • 3 medium carrots

Thai Peanut Dressing

  • 1 lime juiced
  • 6 tbsp sweet chilli sauce
  • 30 grams coriander
  • 10 grams mint leaves
  • 5 tbsp water
  • 1 tbsp soy sauce
  • 4 tbsp ground nut oil
  • 100 grams chunky peanut butter


  • Peel and grate the carrots. Shred the cabbage finely, about ⅔ mm. Chop the ½ cucumber down the middle and scoop out the watery seeds with a tsp. Throw these away. Slice the cucumber up and thinly slice peppers up and place it all in the biggest bowl that you've got!
  • Put all the ingredients for the dressing in the food processor and blitz well.
  • Pour the dressing over the salad and mix well. Just keep gently turning it all over until you get everything covered.
  • Transfer to your serving dish.
  • Apply To Bereft Face


Use the largest mixing bowl you have. Otherwise it will be rather difficult to mix it all together.
You do want the white cabbage to be very thin strips about ⅔ mm wide. It will alter the flavour of the dish otherwise.
If you want to make this hours ahead of time then simply prepare the salad and keep the dressing to one side to mix with the salad when you are ready to serve.
