Summer Coleslaw

I love salads in summer and I love to experiment with adding in different fruits and vegetables to mix it up at dinnertime.

Two weeks ago I put together this summer coleslaw and it’s been a favourite of ours ever since.  While the kids aren’t going crazy over it (“What is the purple stuff?”), Tom and I are eating it even for breakfast.

Salad Ingredients

1/2 purple cabbage, shredded

6 large carrots, shredded

1 large gala apple, chopped thinly

1/2 c pumpkin seeds

1/2 c raisins (or cranberries)

Dressing Ingredients

1/3 c olive oil

1/4 c rice vinegar

2 large tbsp homemade mayonnaise


Just mix all ingredients together in a large bowl and serve.
