Sesame-ginger slaw

Bust out your pickles; let’s make a slaw. A slaw is one of those salads that involves very little work and very little cost, because, essentially, it’s just shredded cabbage. But throw some cheeky herbs, pickled bits, nuts, and seeds at it, and suddenly your slaw is impressive as hell. This particular slaw is crunchy, spicy and sharp, just like all the best things in life, and has a dressing that you should probably make in bulk and put on everything.

 

Ingredients

½ red cabbage, shredded

½ savoy cabbage, shredded

1 large beetroot, grated

½ red onion, thinly sliced

¼ cup pickled carrots (drained)

¼ cup pickled radishes (drained)

1 small handful mint, shredded roughly

1 handful coriander, shredded roughly + extra for garnish

2 Tbsp sesame seeds + extra for garnish (a mix of black and white if you’ve got ‘em!)

½ red chilli, sliced thinly

 

Dressing

6 tbsp sesame oil

2 tbsp soy sauce (or tamari, which is gluten free)

Juice of 1 lime

1 tsp honey

1 clove of garlic, minced

1 thumb of ginger, grated finely

 

Toss all your slaw ingredients together in a bowl. In a jar, combine your dressing ingredients (make sure the honey dissolves all up in there). Drizzle the dressing over the slaw and toss it all together. Put it in a bowl, throw extra sesame seeds and coriander leaves artfully over the top, and enjoy one incredibly aesthetic looking slaw. Chow down on that.

The Messara Report on New Zealand Horse Racing

: My mum’s family loves a “flutter”.   A “flutter” is Kiwi slang for betting. Usually on horse racing, but we’re also partial to the odd greyhound meet or two. In April 2018, the Minister for Racing, Winston Peters, released the Messara report, calling for the clos
