Madhouse Recipe : Fruity Coleslaw

This started off as regular homemade coleslaw - chop 1/2 white cabbage, 1 large carrot and 1 spring onion and toss together in a bowl. Add light mayonnaise, 1 tablespoonful at a time, until it is evenly covered (use the smallest amount possible).

As part of the veg box challenge, I wanted to make a few changes so I chopped up a red apple, squeezed over some lemon juice, and added it to the coleslaw with a generous handful of raisins.

This actually worked really well - the soft chewiness of the raisins nicely complemented the crunchiness of the vegetables.

  1. Sorry that I'm commenting again, but I can't believe you're posting this recipe, I've literally spent my whole morning looking at different coleslaw recipes! I want to make a asian flavoured one, but I'm slightly scared of raw cabbage, is there anything I need to pay attention to?

    1. Not at all, what are you worried about?!

    2. raw cabbage... I've never eaten more than like a tablespoon...

    3. Take off the rough outer leaves and the hard core and just shred it fine. It may give some people indigestion, I guess, but can't be any worse than cucumber !

  2. I am a big fan of coleslaw but have never had the guts to try and make it myself, this sounds delicious!

  3. This sounds really easy and cheap to make too, I'll be giving it a go. I might spice it up with a little mustard too.

  4. this sounds like my cup of tea, will need to give it a go.
