Large salted peanuts
Raisins
125 ml double cream
5 tablespoons Hellman's Mayonnaise

Shred the cabbage and carrot, peel and chop the apple, add two handfuls of peanuts and the same amount of raisins.  Whip the double cream and mix with the mayonnaise and then mix all the ingredients together.  Chill until needed.  Serve with homemade quiches, crusty rolls with ham or a dish on its own. 

Enjoy the weekend.
