Christmas Salad with Budwig Mayonnaise

This is really a sort of rough coleslaw made with Brussels Sprouts – as they are in season it’s a pity not to use them.

Page contents


  • A good  small portion of raw Brussels Sprouts

A smaller portion of each of the following ingredients, 

  • LeekChou_de_Bruxelles_demi-nain_de_la_Halle_Vilmorin-Andrieux_1904
  • Celery
  • Onion
  • Apple
  • Carrot.

Mayonnaise ingredients

  • Quark
  • Cold-pressed linseed oil
  • Mustard
  • Garlic
  • Lemon juice/apple cider vinegar
  • Dill pickles


Chopped Walnuts


Finely sliced or grate all vegetables and place in a bowl.

Next make the Budwig mayonnaise from a portion of linseed oil quark cream by adding a dollop of your favourite seedy mustard, a crushed clove of garlic, a tablespoon chopped mini dill pickled cucumbers,  a good squeeze of lemon juice/ACV and enough fruit juice for taste (apple, parsnip and carrot is nice) and to make a soft mayonnaise consistency.

Then stir the mayonnaise into the salad and top with chopped herbs, walnuts and/or colourful fruit – pomegranate looks brilliant and is in season.

Top with chopped Walnuts


I see there is worldwide support for the Budwig protocol through various forums. This website shares information that makes it easier to follow the Budwig Diet in the UK and keep it as close as possible to Johanna Budwig’s original diet. Linseed oil and ground linseed has certainly helped me, to take more control of my own health and seeing my health improve by doing so. This is why I feel this protocol needs to be more widely known. This Budwig diet is too good not to share. I hope it helps you as much as it has helped me. I highly recommend Flax Farm for all of the products I use for my recipes.
