It amazes me that people will actually use their hard earned money to buy tubs of what can only be described as shit in a pot. I refer of course to shop bought coleslaw. It has to go down in my book as one of the most offensive items of food on sale. Why anyone would buy it when it’s so easy to create your own beggers belief. I urge you to step away from the putrid, onion stench that the supermarkets peddle as coleslaw and try yourself the real thing.
1 large firm green cabbage (cored and very finely sliced)
4 stalks celery (finely chopped)
4 spring onions (finely chopped)
4 carrots (coarsley grated)
1 cup (good quality mayonnaise)
3 tablespoons freshly squeezed lemon juice
salt & pepper.
Combine the cabbages, celery, onions, carrots in a large bowl.
Mix together the mayonnaise, lemon juice, salt & pepper in a small bowl, then pour over the vegetables and stir in well. Cover and pop in the fridge for at least an hour.
