Units Scale


  • 1/2 cup olive oil
  • 1/4 cup cider vinegar
  • 1 Tbsp honey (try garlic fermented honey, see notes)
  • 1 Tbsp Dijon mustard
  • 1 tsp turmeric powder
  • 1 tsp salt, to taste
  • 1/2 tsp ground black pepper, to taste


  • 1/2 medium head of red cabbage
  • 2 carrots
  • 1 red pepper
  • 4 spring onions


  1. Mix the salad dressing ingredients in the bottom of a large bowl. Fermented honey isn’t nearly as sweet as regular honey, so use 1 Tbsp of regular honey or 3 Tbsp of fermented honey.
  2. Finely dice or grate the cabbage and carrots. Dice the red pepper and spring onions. 
  3. Toss the vegetables with the salad dressing. Serve immediately for a crisp salad. Alternatively, cover and let it marinate for 1-2 hours before serving.


  • This recipe was designed to feature garlic-fermented honey. However, it’s fine to use raw honey or skip the sweetness altogether.
  • Because of the health risks associated with the consumption of raw honey, this recipe is not recommended for pregnant women, children under the age of 1 year, or anyone who may be immunocompromised.
