Home-made coleslaw


If you are having a barbecue this weekend, why not try this easy and delicious home-made coleslaw. All you need is cabbage, some red onion, (carrot if you like), creme fraiche, lemon, salt and pepper.

The best cabbage for the slaw is fresh spring cabbage. Cut it into very thin slices. Place the cabbage into a sieve or colander and rinse with cold water. Then bring a kettle-full of water into boil and once boiling, pour over the cabbage. Rinse again with cold water. The boiling water will soften the cabbage slightly, but not too much. Make sure you drain the cabbage very well.

Slice the red onion too and mix with the cabbage. Add some grated carrot if you like. Then, 1-2 tbsp of creme fraiche, a dash of lemon juice, salt and pepper.

This coleslaw tastes great with pork chops or sausages too.

Warm welcome to my blog. I’m Hanna, a nurse and also very passioned about healthy nutritious food and how it affects our overall health and wellbeing, both physical and mental. Eating right is the most important thing you can do to stay healthy. Not just cutting down sugar, grains and excess carbohydrates, but also choosing nutritious and good quality foods, such as good vegetables, berries, herbs and spices, is extremely important. I try not to forget stress management and healthy exercise either.
