Coleslaw

I am rather a fan of coleslaw.  I’m going to go ahead and blame the Polish and German bits of me, it seems appropriate.  But I LOVE it!  However, until Thursday night I had never actually made it before.  Until Tuesday morning I had never even considered making it before but I was waiting for my car to get its MOT and was reading Good Food magazine.  I thought there would be difficult things like pickling or canning or something.  Nope!  You cut stuff up into tiny bits and add saucy stuff!  So simple!

The best thing about this recipe,aside from being so simple, was that I used the grater attachment on the food processor for the first time.  Most. Fun. Ever!  I could have carried on grating things for hours but I had to restrain myself because as much as I love coleslaw I couldn’t eat that much of it!  If you don’t have a food processor to do it for you then just use a regular box grater or slice things very very finely. 

Serves 6

1/2 white cabbage
1 carrot, peeled
1 small onion, peeled
3 tbsp good quality mayonnaise (or why not make your own)
3 tbsp creme fraiche
1 tsp dijon mustard

– Grate the cabbage, carrot and onion. 
– In a meduim sized bowl mix all of the ingredients together.  Make sure everything is well combined and all the vegetables are coated. 
– Keep in the fridge until you need it.
