Coleslaw Recipe

This salad consists of cabbage, carrot, capsicum and green onion in a tangy, mayonnaise-based dressing. Because the vegetables soften and release moisture once dressed, we prefer to dress the salad just before serving. Coleslaw is a great accompaniment to barbequed meats or roast chicken.

When purchasing cabbage for this recipe, remember to allow for the removal of the core and any tough outer leaves. A mandoline could be used to finely shred the cabbage.

Serves 4-6 as a side dish.

180g (2 1/4 cups, loosely packed) finely shredded cabbage
180g (2 1/4 cups, loosely packed) finely shredded red cabbage
1 medium (about 130g) carrot, peeled and grated
1 small-medium (about 200g) red or yellow capsicum, thinly sliced
24g (1/4 cup) finely chopped green onion (green shallot)

2/3 cup (166g) mayonnaise
2 tablespoons (40ml) white vinegar
3 teaspoons caster sugar
Salt, to taste ©

Stir mayonnaise, white vinegar, sugar and salt together in a small bowl. Cover bowl and refrigerate until required.

Toss vegetables together in a large bowl. If you wish to serve the salad immediately, pour dressing over the vegetables and toss to coat. Otherwise, cover the bowl with plastic wrap, store in the refrigerator and dress salad just before serving.

Thanks for another "keeper". The dressing for this coleslaw is so well balanced. No need to change a thing.

Gave this a whirl last night with your beer battered fish recipe and mum couldn't stop eating it before dinner was served! I added some diced celery for extra crunch and substituted the green onion for some diced red onion - still turned out ok, maybe lacking slightly in flavour strength, but still nice. I think I'll forget about going to the chicken shop to buy coleslaw from now on, making our own is so much better!

I have used this coleslaw recipe a few times and is a real hit. Used white balsamic vinegar instead of normal vinegar and was really flavoursome!
