Red cabbage coleslaw

I made this to go with a lasagne and mixed salad last night and it was rather tasty so I thought I'd share.  No photo, I'm afraid so this will have to do.
Found on Google at http://marksvegplot.blogspot.co.uk/2010/10/pickled-red-cabbage.html
An interesting looking gardening blog.
red cabbage, finely shredded
carrot, peeled, quartered longways and then finely sliced
some sweetened dried cranberries (the extra sweetness goes so well with the red cabbage - some sliced apple would also go well, I think)
mayonnaise (I used some out of a jar but home made would be much nicer)
(amounts are to personal taste)

Bung the lot in a bowl and mix well!

I'm definitely making that again!


  1. Now that is a combination I would not have thought of. Another for my list, thanks:)

  2. With spring here, more or less, and summer around the corner, salads are looking more inviting again, aren't they? I hope you enjoy it.

  3. I have made this now and it is delicious!! I did not have cranberries so I used dried Morello cherries: I also used a few chopped segments of an orange. Gorgeous, thanks:)

  4. Mmmm - cherries and oranges sounds brilliant. Thanks for the idea. It tastes so different with red cabbage, doesn't it?
