If your runner beans are anything like mine over the last couple of weeks a fine crop has been produced. But what to do with the little blighters once you have them? This Runner Bean Coleslaw recipe came with the Taste of Summer pack that started off the whole ‘runner bean’ growing thing… Nice on its own but try stuffing a pitta bread with a spoonful or two and top with shredded chicken…

Runner Bean Coleslaw

A fresh and crunchy salad suitable for a light lunch or a side dish


  • 200g runner beans finely shredded
  • 1/2 small red cabbage finely shredded
  • 1 medium carrot, grated
  • 1 small shallot finely sliced
  • 4 tbsp mayonnaise
  • 1 tsp Dijon mustard
  • seasoning


  1. Quantities are more ‘to taste’ rather than fixed. Just mix the shredded vegetables and douse in Mayonnaise mixed with a little Dijon mustard. Like a little more bite? Add more mustard…


  1. See – I told you green would work ;) Love the salad & pic.

    Great runner bean recipe by the looks of it. Very original. Just been handed a bunch of runner beans by our neighbour from her allotment – may have to give this a try.

  3. I want to try a new kind of coleslaw like yours.

    It is certianly nice, fresh and crunchy. Worth a try at least.

    This looks delicious. I like that you leave the quantities more up “to taste”…that’s exactly how I like to cook!
