5 minutes coleslaw

how to make coleslaw

When you see carrots and cabbage lying fallow in your fridge, what comes to mind? Coleslaw right? Well, if you are a huge fan of coleslaw, then this 5 minutes recipe is for you. Take the regular coleslaw to another level by adding spring onions and coconut shavings to it. Coconut to me, takes most dish to a whole new level.

I am not a huge fan of onions in coleslaw but I would give spring onions thumbs up all the time in coleslaw as it make it very tasty and refreshing. If you also want to try something new apart from the regular mayonnaise dressing, add a bit of lemon juice or rind to the coleslaw to give it a bit of zing. You can also add a little bit of sugar to it too and you will never see coleslaw the same way again. Making coleslaw is pretty easy and with a food processor or grater, you can make it happen in 5 minutes
