If you’re looking for a quick and easy side dish, look no further.  This Coleslaw is refreshing, a little crunchy and seriously delicious.  For the best effect, a purple cabbage, a green cabbage and some grated carrot combined look awesome.  Feel free to keep it simple – using just green cabbage is ok.

Like most salads, it can be made ahead and then dressed at the last minute.  Alternatively, you can prepare the cabbage and carrots on the weekend and store the mix in a plastic bag or container in the fridge.  In a day or two when you need your coleslaw, empty the contents into a salad bowl, add the dressing and your lovely side dish can be ready in 5 minutes.

While this Coleslaw is great with pasta, you can pair it with so many things –  fish, veggie patties, quiche or these Corn Puffs, giving your dinner a healthy, refreshing twist.


This Coleslaw makes a great companion to so many meals - pasta, pizza, quiche and so the list goes on.  If you have leftovers, throw some into a bread roll with cheese and tuna and there you have a delicious lunch the next day.
