Finely shred the cabbages, roughly chop the kale excluding stocks, peel and finely slice the carrots and trim and finely slice the spring onions. Place in a large bowl.

Gently fry the garlic in a little olive oil. Do not burn.
In food processor, add the fried garlic, vinegar, oil and mustard and blend for a few minutes, then stop and add the Manuka honey. Blend for a few seconds. Add a pinch of sea salt and black pepper, then pour it over the sliced veg. Use your hands to toss and dress everything.

Heat the seeds in a dry pan for a few minutes until warm, then scatter them over the salad. Pick and tear over your mint leaves, then eat it immediately.
