  1. Arrange the ribs in a roasting tin in a single layer. Pour over the marinade and turn to coat completely. Set aside to marinate for at least 30 minutes (or chill overnight).
  2. Preheat the oven to gas 6, 200°C, fan 180°C. Roast the ribs for 25-30 minutes, until cooked through and sticky. Meanwhile, toast the walnut pieces in a small pan for 3-5 minutes, until golden.
  3. Combine the mayonnaise and mustard in a large bowl with a little seasoning. Add the cabbage, onion, carrot, celeriac, apple, walnuts and chives and toss until coated. Serve with the sticky ribs and some warm, crusty bread, if you like.
