Coleslaw simply means cabbage salad. It is a blend of finely shredded cabbage, carrots and a few other crunchy vegetables. It is then generously dressed with mayonnaise and salad cream.
Salad cream (preferably Heinz Classic Salad Cream)
A pinch of salt
All the vegetables need to be washed
Cut the cabbage, into very tiny pieces
Scrape and shred the carrots using a grater, then use a knife to cut across the shreds to make the pieces even smaller
Put the cabbage, green peas, and carrots into a large bowl
In a separate, smaller bowl, mix the salad cream and mayonnaise
Pour the cream mix into the bowl of vegetables and stir very well (optional)
Chill and serve
You can add a pinch of ground pepper if you like it spicy
Coleslaw can be eaten alone or as a side dish to Jollof Rice, Coconut Rice, Fried Rice and any type of rice.
