  1. If you aren’t a fan of mustard, or don’t have any to hand, then you can alternatively add some lemon juice to the coleslaw.
  2. If you have a mandolin then I recommend using this to slice the cabbage and onion. I used a 1.5mm setting.
  3. You can swap the sunflower seeds for any variety you prefer. Toasting is also optional but it adds good flavour.
