I can eat whole bowls of this slaw. You can make a fine tartar sauce to serve with grilled fresh fish by mixing all the ingredients besides the cabbage and the vinegar. As an accompaniment to fish, you might want to add the grated zest of 1 lemon too and a few tablespoons of chopped parsley.


  • ¼ cup capers, roughly chopped
  • ¼ cup chopped gherkins, plus 2 tbsp of the juice
  • 1 tbsp Dijon mustard
  • 2 cups mayonnaise
  • ¾ tsp sea salt
  • ½ tsp freshly ground black pepper
  • 5 tbsp cider vinegar
  • ½ tsp sugar
  • 1 large green cabbage, finely julienned


    In a small bowl, mix together all but the julienned cabbage.

    In a larger bowl, toss the cabbage with as much of the tartar sauce as you like. Taste to see if you would like to add more salt and pepper.
