Coleslaw [Apr. 8th, 2017|08:06 pm]
Tony Grist
Today we made coleslaw. I can't think we've ever done that before.

The recipe goes:

6 tbs yoghurt
2 tbs mayonnaise
1 tsp mustard
1 onion
half a white cabbage
1 cooking apple
1 carrot

The vegetables need to be diced or shredded (of course) and the quantities are approximate and to taste (or in other words the onion can be as big or as little as you choose.)

Interesting. My mother's classic coleslaw never used yoghurt, mustard, onion or apple. But perhaps the recipe was more geared to American taste. She made a creamy dressing for the cabbage/carrot mix but I'd have to look up the ingredients.

I was surprised that the recipe I used asked for yoghurt.

A very simple recipe. I see it as a base to which all sorts could be added.

My mom made it with cabbage, and French salad dressing. I don't like French dressing so I never ate it.

At Kentucky Fried Chicken, they now call it "Traditional Salad" and I wonder if it's because Canada has so many immigrants, and "cole slaw" meant nothing to some of them.

As an English person my idea of a "traditional salad" is a rather boring arrangement of watery lettuce, tomato and cucumber.
