Polish Coleslaw Recipe

Polish Coleslaw

In my Inspiration to action post one the four things you can do to start having a healthier life was to “Eat more green things”

One of the ideas to help you do this was to make your own coleslaw. Yes, I know it is not green, but its vegetables and they are good for you!

As with many things I now love. I used to hate coleslaw. That was until I tried Polish Coleslaw! Introduced to me by my girlfriend!

Below is a recipe –

Ingredients – Serves 2

You will need to change/estimate the quantities depending on how many you are serving. Just add an extra carrot or a bit more cabbage.

Method

  1. Grate the carrots into a bowl
  2. Grate/thinly slice the red cabbage (fancy peelers and shredders are useful for this but a cheese grater is fine) as required into the same bowl.
  3. Very thinly slice the leek. Add to the carrots and cabbage.
  4. Add one tablespoon of mayonnaise to the carrots, cabbage and leeks and stir in. (You will need no more than this. At times a tablespoon may be too much. Add a little at the start, you can always add more). This may take a couple of minutes. Keep stirring until all the vegetables are lightly and evenly coated.
  5. Add a squeeze of lemon juice. Stir.
  6. Season with a little salt and black pepper. Stir.

A good grater makes the job easier!

That is it!

It goes with pretty much anything. I tend to have it with fish and potatoes.

Give it a try. It is a great way to eat raw vegetables so that none of the nutrients are lost.

Smacznego!
