Fresh and Fruity Coleslaw, best of all - it's homemade!
Coleslaw is a great addition to buffets at parties or picnics, or a lovely side to your meals. This recipe is for a fruitier version of your average coleslaw and is refreshing in the summer.

I have used my own homemade Raspberry flavour mayo, however you could use whatever flavoured or non flavoured mayonnaise you like. You don't have to add any mayo if you prefer, just add a dash of dressing to your bowl instead. It's really simple and definitely worth a try.

This recipe makes 2 x 500ml containers or a large bowl for a Buffet.
This coleslaw will keep for 2 - 3 days when stored in an airtight container in the fridge, however it is better when consumed the same day as the colours can start to bleed into the mayo after a while.

  • How to make coleslaw. Homemade Fruity Coleslaw - Step 1
    Step 1

    If you are using homemade mayo - make that first and pop it in the fridge for now.
    Prepare the rest of your ingredients. You can grate the carrots, radishes and apple, but will need to cut the cabbage, onion and pepper as thinly as you can. Your grated ingredients may seem a bit wet, so you may want to pad them a little with a clean tea towel or kitchen roll to take out some of the moisture.

    Put the cabbage in a large bowl. Add the onions and peppers and mix gently with your hands. While still hand-mixing, add the carrots, apple and radishes. You don't want to work it too much, just enough for your ingredients not to be stuck together in clumps.

    Add your mayo and gently stir in. If you add it one spoonful at a time then you can ensure you have the coverage and consistency you desire. Remember you can always add more but definitely can't remove any! The mayo will go a little thinner from the natural moisture from your ingredients so a couple of stirs is all it needs.
