This German-inspired salad recipe is made with frehs white cabbage slaw with oil and vinegar dressing, fresh dill and topped with shredded ham. A little Dijon mustard and you have a gorgeous salad that is nutritious, gluten-free, low-carb, paleo and Whole30 friendly (omit honey!).



100 g/ 3.5 oz g shredded ham or ham hock (see notes)

For the salad

150 g / 5 oz white cabbage, finely shredded

¼ teaspoon salt

¼ red onion, thinly sliced

A handful of fresh dill, chopped

1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar or white wine vinegar

2 tablespoons olive oil

½ teaspoon honey (can be omitted)

A pinch of pepper

To serve: 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard


Sprinkle the shredded cabbage with a generous pinch of salt and leave for 5 minutes while you prepare other ingredients. The cabbage will release some of its juices. Use your hands to massage the cabbage for 10-15 seconds, to soften it slightly.

Add the rest of the salad ingredients and mix through really well. Serve the salad with the shredded ham hock and a dollop of the mustard over the top.


You can use shredded chicken, beef, pulled pork or a vegetarian option instead of ham.
