Homemade Coleslaw

Coleslaw is really easy to make, and its far cheaper to make at home than to buy the ready made stuff, which normally is too sharp and vinegary for my tastes anyway, as well as being really over priced. Cabbage and carrots are so cheap! It is a bit of an old fashioned salad, but great for barbecues for that retro feeling.


  • 1/2 white cabbage
  • 4 carrots
  • 1/2 onion
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • Salt and pepper
  • 4 tablespoons white wine vinegar
  • 4 tablespoons double cream
Peel the carrots and grate as finely as you can. You can do this by hand, or using your food processor if you have one.

Finely slice the cabbage - get it as thinly cut as you can! Aim for a similar size to the grated carrots. An easy way to do this is using the grater attachment in a food processor.

Finely slice or grate the onion - you get the picture, same as for the carrots and cabbage, you want it as fine as possible.

Mix everything together in a bowl with the cream, vinegar, sugar and seasoning.

That's it! All done. Its really quick if you use a machine to do the grating, but even doing it by hand it doesn't take too long.
