  2. Half a red cabbage
  3. 4 sticks celery
  4. 4 spring onions, cut into shreds
  5. Small bunch coriander
  6. 200g walnuts kernels or 75g walnuts, shelled.

  8. 6 dates, or 4 if using a large variety such as the Medjool
  9. 4 tbsp walnut oil
  10. 1 tbsp balsamic vinegar

This is a bold and hearty salad for the winter months.
