  1. Put the cabbage and carrot in a colander and toss with the sugar and salt. Set aside in the sink for 5 mins to draw the moisture out, then rinse well under cold water. Gently spin dry in a salad spinner or pat dry with kitchen paper. 
  2. Meanwhile, whisk together the mayonnaise or yogurt, vinegar, mustard and baharat seasoning; season well with black pepper. 
  3. Put the cabbage and carrot in a bowl with the spring onions, radishes and peas. Mix the dressing through along with the mint. Will keep in the fridge for 3-5 days.
