Seen as somewhat old-fashioned and boring, the humble coleslaw is anything but. It’s such a versatile vegetable dish and great in winter instead of green salads. The recipe below is very basic but you can add any number of ingredients, such as walnuts, sprouts, onion, apple, celery, corn, herbs and capsicum, just to name a few. Otherwise, use a bag of pre-prepared coleslaw from the supermarket. The dressing is much lighter than heavy mayonnaise.
Ingredients: Salad ¼ white or red medium-sized cabbage, finely sliced 2 medium carrots, grated
Dressing 3 tbsp mayonnaise 3 tbsp milk 2 tbsp white wine vinegar 2 tbsp caster sugar
Method: • In a large bowl, combine the cabbage and carrots. • Place the dressing ingredients in a jug and mix. • Pour the dressing over the vegetables and mix well to combine. • This salad is best made 1–2 hours before serving for flavours to combine, but it’s not essential.
