Lime Green Slaw

It's been ages since I posted a good old slaw recipe, which is weird as it's up there for me in terms of food from the gods! I love salads &  I go mad over raw pickled cabbage and because this slaw is a combination of those two, with the added bonus of some beautiful Summery flavours, it's very delicious. This slaw is a creamy one, but because it's made with natural yoghurt instead of mayonnaise, it's that little bit lighter. The fresh herby flavours running through it, with the added kick of lime makes it the prefect slaw to sit along side anything. I had some inside my favourite Portobello burger and the kids had theirs alongside some spicy chicken skewers, but I'm sure it would go with any thing BBQ related.
