Preparation Time: 10 minutes          /          Cooking Time: 0 minutes          /          Serves 6-8 (as a side)


  • 1/2 head red cabbage
  • 3 large carrots, peeled
  • 1/2 red onion
  • 2 large green apples, peeled
  • 1 generous handful of roughly chopped flat leaf parsley
  • 1 cup (250ml) apple cider vinegar
  • 2 tbsp (30g) white sugar
  • salt and pepper to taste



  1. Thinly slice the cabbage, carrots, onion and apples and combine in a bowl.
  2. In a separate bowl dissolve the sugar in the apple cider vinegar.
  3. Combine all of the ingredients together.
  4. Season with salt and pepper and eat, or refrigerate for a few hours to intensify the flavours



If you have a food processor, use it to slice the ingredients in step 1. It saves a lot of time and gives you a better consistency.

Paul founded The City Lane back in 2009 as a place to share photos of his travels around Europe with friends and family. The City Lane might have changed quite a lot since those early days but one thing that’s remained constant is Paul’s passion for food, travel and culture, and a desire to photograph and write about his experiences. Paul has a strong inquisitive nature that drives him to look beneath the surface in order to discover what really makes a city and its people tick, and what better way to do this than over a good meal or drink, with a city’s locals, at places that people who live in that city actually frequent. Paul is also a co-host of The Brunswick Beer Collective, a podcast that may or may not actually be about beer.
