    • 2 level tbsp caster sugar


    • 2 level tsp Ras el hanout


    • 2 tbsp cider vinegar


    • 4 tbsp olive oil


    • Pinch of salt


    • Shake of Tabasco sauce, optional


    • ½-1 large red chilli, deseeded


    • 1 small red onion, peeled


    • 1 Romano or bell red pepper, deseeded


    • 200g (7oz) Savoy cabbage wedge


    • 200g (7oz) red cabbage wedge






    1. Mix the sugar and spice in a large bowl with the vinegar, oil and a pinch of salt, and adding Tabasco, if you like.


    1. Finely slice the chilli and onion and add to the dressing in the bowl. Slice the pepper into thin strips and add to the bowl.
