BBQ season is the best time of year to have parties. I especially love the garden party, formal & informal gatherings, of friends & if family are here too then I am in heaven!
I love coleslaw at any time but it is the best salad to have on a table & goes with all grilled meat.This recipe is light & fresh. I make this with low fat Mayonnaise but you can use the full fat variety if you wish
1/2 -1 cabbage
4 - 8 Carrots
Bunch spring onions
Low fat or fat free mayonnaise, amount according to your liking
2 tbsp Cider vinegar
2 tbsp Dijon mustard or grainy mustard
1/2 tsp liquid sweetener or 2 tsp Sugar add more if necessary
1/2 cup plain very low fat yoghurt, full fat if wished.
2 tsp Lemon juice
Salt & Pepper
Tomato ketchup can also be added, why not split into two bowls one with ketchup & one without ;-)
Shred cabbage, carrot & chop onion. Mix together in a large bowl.
In a separate bowl mix together yoghurt, mustard & vinegar.
Add salt, pepper, lemon & sweetener.
Stir all ingredients together really well then add mayonnaise& make sure
At this point you can add the tomato ketchup.
Pour mixture over the vegetables & work it through so all the veg is covered.
It can be thinned with a little milk if necessary.
Now store covered, in the fridge over night, for the flavours to meld. It can be eaten the same day if time is short.
