Coleslaw [A Simple Side Dish]


I noticed that J(3y7m) likes coleslaw very much. Every time we had KFC, he asked for coleslaw for sure. Then he decided to call it "KFC's veggies" for both restaurant and homemade versions. Well, coleslaw is the only vegetable dish available at KFC.

My old version of coleslaw was made with evaporated milk which T did not like it at all. Now, I always use mayonnaise together with some other sauces. Please note the measurement for seasoning is for reference only, I always taste along as I prepare this salad.

200g cabbage, slice as fine as possible
1 small carrot, shredded

4-5 tbsp Japanese mayonnaise
1 tbsp Sugar
1 tbsp Rice vinegar/Lemon juice
1 tsp Worcestershire sauce
Pinch of salt
1-2 tsp Ketchup (optional)

  1. In a large mixing bowl, mix together cabbage and carrot.
  2. Add in dressing and mix well.
  3. Chill in the fridge before serving.

Fried Rice

I served coleslaw with fried rice and some hams, it was an east met west kind of lunch.

I love my coleslaw with a bit of green apples (shredded) and raisins or canned pineapples (drained and chopped).

That's why I like my mil's kitchen so much, she has great collection of Japanese bowls and plates.

Adding fruit sounds good to me, perhaps I will try pineapple first.

I used round cabbage for coleslaw.

Soda siphons,
Thanks for the compliments.
