Mix the cabbage, celery, green pepper and salad onions together in a large bowl.

Mix the mustard, creamed horseradish, Tabasco and vinegar in a small bowl and gradually whisk in the oil to make a dressing. Stir in the yoghurt and season well.

Stir in the dressing, chopped dill and caraway seeds, if using, into the vegetables before serving so that the cabbage stays nice and crunchy. Dust all over the top with the cayenne pepper and serve.
