The dressing

This simple and very quick dressing has just a slight ‘prickle’ from the chilli. If you would like more heat leave the seeds in the chilli. Make sure you shake the dressing well so that the sugar thoroughly dissolves. This little dressing will keep for ages in the refrigerator.

 What to serve the slaw with

Our favourite ways to serve this Asian slaw is with pulled pork buns or grilled chicken and fish. It’s perfect too with some fresh prawns or panfried scallops.

You could even toss some chilled vermicelli noodles through it for a great cold vegetarian noodle salad.

Of all the trees on the property one of the most unusual is this glorious silk floss tree. Normally it flowers annually in late March, but here it is early February and it’s flowering.

Amazing what some rain can do. We have gone from ‘crunchy under foot’ grass to green everywhere we look.
