  • 1 tbsp yellow mustard
  • 1 tbsp vinegar
  • 4 tbsp olive oil

  • ½ head cabbage shredded
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice freshly squeezed

  • Make the Dressing: In a small bowl, mix together the mustard, vinegar, olive oil, salt and pepper. Whisk it until it's well incorporated.
  • Shred Cabbage & Toss: Shred the cabbage using a mandoline or cut it as small as you can using a sharp knife, and place it in a large bowl. Pour the dressing over the cabbage and toss well.
  • Prep apples: Pour the lemon juice over the apple so as not to get brown.
  • Combine: Add the cheese, apple, raisins and sesame seeds to the cabbage and toss everything well together.
  • Serve: Serve cold.


  1. Store leftovers in an airtight container in the fridge for 3-4 days.
