Healthy Homemade Coleslaw Recipe

It is not always easy to get your young ones to eat their vegetables, especially as winter draws in. This dish will offer a spark of colour that will prove irresistible to everyone and is a real crowd pleaser as part of a dirty burger stack alongside our feta and avocado guacamole.

You Will Need;
1/2 small red cabbage
1/2 red onion
1 carrot
1/2 red pepper
1/2 yellow pepper
4 tbsp. Mayonnaise (to make this into a vegan dish just simply swap out for an egg-free version)

I like to finely chop all of the ingredients and then add the mayonnaise, I wrap it and pop it in the fridge for a few hours before eating.An easy recipe for creamy coleslaw the homemade way!

This allows the mayonnaise to turn this otherwise everyday coleslaw into a purple vibrant dish. You can vary the amount of Mayonnaise used, but I like just a covering not too much.

Pro Tip – if encouraging young ones to eat their vegetables, this makes a really good Halloween themed dish – Cauldron Coleslaw. The red cabbage becomes monster brains and the yellow peppers are ghoulish teeth, the vibrant colours will allow your imagination to run wild! This goes very well with homemade dirty burgers, after a nights trick or treating or a bonfire celebration!

Healthy, homemade and creamy this coleslaw recipe is a perfect family pleaser!

Pro Tip – for a slimming World option you can use low fat mayo or no mayo at all by substituting no fat Greek yoghurt.

I would love to see how you work out your family versions of this simple dish, adding sweetcorn, sultanas or taking away the red onion for spring onions instead! Let’s start to share our own versions!
