Crunchy, colourful and full of zingy fresh flavours this healthy alternative to traditional coleslaw is perfect to serve with cold meats for a Boxing Day buffet or with cranberry glazed ham for a special dinner party. Everything can be prepared ahead of time and simply tossed together when ready to serve.
To make cranberry glazed ham to go with the coleslaw, cook the ham according to directions. Place 250g cranberries in a saucepan with the grated zest and juice of an orange, 100g caster sugar, a few cloves and a cinnamon stick. Cook for a few minutes until the cranberries have softened a little and the juice is syrupy. Remove the skin from the ham, stud the top of the ham with cloves then brush with a little of the sauce to make a sticky glaze, cut fresh cranberries in half and arrange over the top of the ham, serve with the remaining sauce and spoonfuls of the coleslaw.
