Coleslaw is the perfect side for many dishes including Jacket Potatoes, Cheese Toasties and all kinds of salads. It is very easy to make and requires only 4 basic ingredients. The quantities vary depending on how much you want to make, if it doesn’t seem enough just add a little bit more cabbage and carrot. In Turkey, where I live, the size of cabbages vary from small to enormous, so adjust the ingredients accordingly. In this recipe (and photo) I have used a small red cabbage as they are readily available all year round, but a regular green cabbage can be used too.
1 large onion (finely chopped)
1-2 large carrots (peeled and grated)
Approximately 1/4 of a small round cabbage (finely chopped)
2-3 large tbsps mayonnaise
Salt and pepper (to taste, as required)
Place the grated carrots, chopped onion and cabbage in a bowl and mix.
Add the mayonnaise and again mix well to ensure all the vegetables are well mixed.
Add salt and pepper as required and serve.
