  1. Place the garlic in a bowl and slowly stir in the lemon juice.
  2. Add the oil, drop by drop to start with, whisking all the time until you have a soft mayonnaise consistency.
  3. Fold in the cabbage, mint and caraway seeds until the cabbage is coated with the dressing.
  4. Check seasoning and serve immediately.

Serving suggestions

Goes well with grills and barbecues.


The sauce can be quite tricky to make, so as an alternative make some Allioli a la moderna instead, using lemon juice. If the allioli is quite thick, thin down with some extra lemon juice.

Chef's notes

When I make this, I omit the caraway seeds as I don't like them, but I also leave out the mint as I want that really raw garlic taste.
