The Best Ever Coleslaw

A simple salad that I LOVE!

Coleslaw is a simple salad that is usually eaten as a side with countless dishes. Most of the time I’ve had coleslaw it seems to be so heavy on the mayonnaise that I forget that there are actually vegetables in it! This recipe uses less mayo and emphasizes the taste of the ingredients, I find it lighter and even more tasty than the regular stuff you can buy from supermarkets. There are only two steps to the recipe so you have to give it a go!


  • 200g white cabbage
  • 2 small carrots
  • 1/2 red onion
  • 1.5 tbsp mayonnaise
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp black pepper
  • 1 tsp sugar
  • 1.5 tsp white wine vinegar


  1. Peel the carrots and prep them along with the other vegetables. For the red onion you can either slice them thinly or fine dice them. I wanted to dice them finely so that it distributes better throughout the salad. For the carrots, you want to julienne them or you could even grate them along the longest side to create long strands of carrot. For the cabbage, here’s an TOP TIP, you can use a peeler to peel along the natural lines of the cabbage and it will create thin strips for you!

2. Add all the veggies into a mixing bowl, add the other ingredients and mix it well. TASTE the coleslaw and see what you think, maybe it needs a little something more for you, if so, add it!

To serve, pile the slaw into a bowl, garnish with some freshly choppped parsley and enjoy!


I love having a heaping side of coleslaw any time I have fried chicken *droool.

Add a teaspoon of your favourite mustard to this recipe for a nice kick to the flavour.

Although I am not a fan, some people add grated cheese to their coleslaw, give it a try.

If you give this recipe a go don’t forget to let me know!
