Apple and macadamia coleslaw

This seriously good coleslaw is a standout with the addition of roasted macadamias. Flavourful, light and fresh, it’s perfect served on top of pork sausages in a bun or as a side dish. If you’re heading to a BBQ, be sure to take this along – just remember to wait until serving time to add the dressing and toss through the roasted macadamias.
