Homemade Coleslaw

Yum
This is something i make when i've got a spare 10 minutes and goes great with almost anything, and is easily modified to suit anyone's taste

First i sort out the vegetables by washing and peeling the below

The bulk of the recipe 

  • 1/4 red cabbage 
  • 1/4 white cabbage
  • 2 spring onions 
  • 1 medium red onion

i thinly slice the red onion and the spring onion and add to a good sized plastic tub with a tight fitting lid
next i put the 2 cabbages and the 2 carrots thru my food processor, 
the food processor i use is a kenwood all in one that has reversible blades for slicing and grating so to save on the washing up i use the same blade to slice the cabbage then flip it to grate the carrots

The blade for my food processor 
This can be done by using a cheese grater for the carrots and a good sharp knife for the cabbages altho it will obviously take a little longer 

Once everything is cut you will end up with a base like this

Next is to mix up the dressing 

to a bowl i add
  • 1 1/2 tbsp of sugar
  • 1/4 tsp celery salt
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • a pinch of pepper
  • 2 tbsp buttermilk
  • 1 tbsp milk
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice
  • 2 tsp dijon mustard

I then stir this mixture until the sugar has dissolved then add 
  • 8 tbsp of mayonnaise
I always use the full fat version as any "light" versions of mayonnaise just don't taste as good to me 
Ingredients mixed with mayo added
I mix the above together untill the mixture becomes smooth and lump free 
Smooth and lump free
Once that's done its a case of simply adding the dressing to the vegetables and mixing well
All mixed up!
With the lid on it will last for around 3 to 5 days in the refrigerator but does benefit from a good stir before use

And as said at the beginning this is easily modified to your own taste, if you like it thicker use more mayo, thinner use less.
Don't like red cabbage? simply use all white and its just as good
My personal favourite is to add some chilli sauce and flakes for a spicy coleslaw!
