(Main recipe only – doesn't include extras or drink)


In a bowl, mix the mayonnaise and yoghurt.


Add the vegetables, cheese and, if using, parsley and mix.

The coleslaw keeps well in the fridge so make it the previous evening to help with the morning rush!


Carefully split open the pitta bread and fill with the coleslaw.

Double the quantities if you have two lunchboxes to prepare.
