What I love about supermarket reductions, like the Co-op reductions, is that you can always pick up good quality vegetables in the reduction basket.

When making this honey mustard coleslaw I managed to get some great bargains.

The red cabbage was down to just 19p and the radishes were also 19p.

Homemade dressing is not only 100% nicer but cheaper and maybe has 4 or 5 ingredients rather than 30 on the ready made stuff.
