Summer Essential Side Dish No3: Homemade Coleslaw

I never understand why anyone would ever buy coleslaw. It is the most cheap and easy thing to make in the world is so much tastier too. Once you have your basics, (cabbage, carrots, onions and mayo) you can then add anything extra you want into the mix. In my opinion the best twist to this is the raisins and I bet your thinking that this will be weird, but trust me and try it and I don’t think you will ever go back (money back guaranteed)! You could also throw in some fresh chilli, grated cheese or add some walnuts, apple and celery and make it into a wardorf. If you ever buy coleslaw after making this then I will eat me hat!

–          100g roughly chopped cabbage

–          50g finely grated carrot

–          ½ red onion, very very finely chopped (unless you don’t mind  the raw onion breath)

–          75g raisins

–          2 tbsp mayonnaise light

Mix all the above ingredients together and you coleslaw is ready to serve 😀

    I’m a huge coleslaw fan– but I’m afraid I always add a little sugar too.

    Love the addition of raisins–never tried it, but I love them in broccoli salad so why not coleslaw? Yum!

    Always best home made! It can be adapted so easily by just chucking in any suitable leftover bits and pieces, like a little (any or all) grated apple, chopped celery, chopped fennel, broken walnuts, pinch of garam masala, teaspoon of grainy mustard.

    No two coleslaws need ever be the same!

      Any brand mayo will do, it doesn’t have to be hellman’s. I will often buy home branded mayo (unless hellman’s is on offer)
