Summer Veg Coleslaw

A couple of minutes grating and chopping and you have a generous bowlful of delicious, juicy veggies that only need a light citrus dressing. It is lovely with barbecued or grilled salmon or chicken or with hummus in a pitta bread for an easy lunch. You can also just eat it on its own, with maybe a handful of nuts.
