Before you read this post I ask that you would please read the disclaimer.
Disclaimer: This coleslaw taste nothing like the white tubs of the same name that you may buy from the supermarket.
I know that those white tubs hit the spot sometimes and that KFC meals would not be the same without them.
But please believe me when I say there is something wonderful about real homemade coleslaw.
The crisp texture,
the vibrant colours,
…and the smooth creamy dressing that ties it all together.
I made some yesterday to celebrate my big brother’s first visit to our new place.
On such an occasion I would have usually made a fancy cake or some vanilla slice but as it was about 40˚C I decided it was too hot to turn the oven on.
So I went to the deli and bought some leg ham off-the-bone and served it with this coleslaw, fresh bread and cold beers,
...and it was perfect.
300g of savoy cabbage
200g of red cabbage
3 spring onions.
¾ cup of good quality whole-egg mayonnaise
¼ cup of lemon juice
I tablespoon of horseradish cream
Slice cabbage and carrot into thin strips.
Dice spring onions.
In a separate bowl combine mayonnaise, lemon juice and horseradish cream.
Taste and season as desired.
Then stir dressing into cabbage and carrot.
Top with spring onions and serve.
Makes a salad that could be enjoyed by four people.
Recipe can be doubled or halved.
