Quick Coleslaw

The main work needed here is just shredding. In the past I have used the shredder on a food processor but find that the result is not the desired crispy coleslaw. Besides, I'd much rather wash a sharp knife and a chopping board rather than the whole hulla baloo that goes with the afore mentioned gadget. So the combination that works for me is:

  • 1/2 pointed cabbadge
  • 1/2 red onion or 3-4 spring onions
  • 3-5 carrots
  • 1 small apple
Combine, season and add 2-3T of good quality organic mayonaise. I used:

If you are out of mayo, you could be super healthy and use yogurt with a dash of maple syrup and 1 crused clove of garlic.

If you want to make it more special you could add a combination of:
  • pecans
  • walnuts
  • toasted almonds
  • pine nuts
  • chopped apricots(none of those orange sulphur dioxide zapped radioactive ones!)
  • raisins and the like(currants,sultanas...)
  • pomegrante seeds
  • dates
Much tastier and nutrient rich than the plastic wrapped tubs!
