The Best Winter Veg Coleslaw

from Jamie at Home, or Cook Your Way to the Good Life, a great book with 'how to' garden tips as well a recipes.

2 carrots
1 bulb fennel
1 golden beet, and/or turnip or rutabaga
1 small celeriac, or try the sun choke here
3/4lb red or green cabbage
1/2 red onion
1 shallot
1 lemon
Olive oil
Handful of fresh herbs maybe chives or chervil in the winter
1 cup plain yogurt
2 tbsp mustard
salt and pepper to taste

Peel root vegetables or scrub well. Shred the carrots, fennel and your choice of 2 of the other root veggies (small portion of large root probably). Put veggies into a mixing bowl. Slice the cabbage, onion and shallot as finely as you can and add to the bowl. In a separate bowl, mix half the lemon juice, a glug of olive oil, the chopped herbs, yogurt and mustard. Pour this dressing over veggies and mix well to coat everything. Season to taste with salt, pepper and lemon juice.
