Making your very own traditional coleslaw couldn’t be simpler and for the cost of a small pot in the shops, you can make 10 times more!
Serves 4-6 generous helpings
1/4 of a whole white cabbage, heart removed, washed, then shredded
1 carrot, washed, peeled and grated
2 celery sticks, tops and tails removed, washed and chopped into chunks
200-250g no fat or very low fat natural yoghurt
Salt and pepper
Dawn: This is a great side dish for any time of the year and especially at summer time when thoughts turn to delightful outdoors eating and leisurely summer days enjoyed beneath clear blue skies lying on picnic blankets, enjoying some of your favourite foods.
- Mix all the ingredients in a large mixing bowl, adding the salt and pepper to personal taste.
Dawn: And hey presto! It’s made! It really is that simple! You may wish to add a squeeze of lemon juice to the ingredients to add a zing to the flavours: personally, I simply adore this without any lemon juice. It makes a filling, lovely snack for mid afternoon as well as a fab accompaniment to main dishes and can keep in an airtight container in the fridge for up to two weeks – if someone doesn’t eat it before!!!
Not only is this delicious tasting and simple to make but the added beauty of this recipe is that the ingredients cost less than £1 to make a big bowl! And, what’s more, you know exactly what has gone into making it, too. A real winning combination!
