This fruity version of classic coleslaw is perfect for anyone who likes their coleslaw slightly sweet or finds onion a bit overpowering. It is great with burgers, BBQ ribs, jacket potatoes and even in sandwiches and wraps. You can try out other ingredient combinations too; how about grape and grated courgette or tomato and pumpkin seed coleslaw?
  • 1/2 small white cabbage
  • 1 carrot
  • 1 apple (eating)
  • 2 x 15 ml spoon low fat mayonnaise (you can use one 15ml spoon of low fat yoghurt and one of mayonnaise too)

Optional ingredients:

  • cherry tomatoes, chopped celery
  • red or green grapes or add 15ml sultanas

I'm going to try that coleslaw!As to the ctarnilo, I too am unable to grow it.I don't have a salad spinner and I used to wrap it in a paper towel, but now, when I bring a bunch home from the store, I rinse it and cut off about 1 inch from the bottom, then store in a glassful of cold water on a shelf in the fridge. I usually change the water every day or two and it lasts for over a week.
