I have both in my fridge. I also have white cabbage, carrots and red onion and some mustard I think. Will this be enough to make it?? Also do I need to add sugar or anything? Never made it before and trying to use up ingredients.

Whichever you prefer, or a mixture of both. Or you can do oil and vinegar if you don’t want it creamy. I always add an apple to my coleslaw

Mayo with a bit of naturalyogurt in it is my fave.

Like Magimedi, I do half and half mayo and yogurt, with a squeeze of lemon juice. I find it too claggy otherwise. I often add finely chopped apple too.

This is my go to from Phil thingy who was married to Fern. Obviously you can do it with just white cabbage.

¼ white cabbage sliced really finely
¼ red cabbage, sliced really finely
1 large carrot, sliced really finely
1 large onion, very finely sliced on the diagonal
6 tbsp mayonnaise
1 tsp Dijon mustard
1 tbsp vinegar
Ground pepper

Mix the chopped vegetables together well.
Mix the mayonnaise, mustard, vinegar and pepper together and add to the veg.
Mix and leave for 30 minutes before serving.

You can always add a bit of water to thin the mayo.

I use white cabbage, carrot, apple and mix in mostly mayo with maybe 1/2tsp of wholegrain mustard. yum!

I use mayo but add a splash of white wine vinegar. Beware though. You'll never enjoy shop bought the same again grin

My version has red or white cabbage, onion, carrot, celery and apple, all chopped small/shredded fine, held together with just enough mayonnaise to bind it. I don’t add anything else.

I’ve often made it for big buffets - there is never any left. And all the ingredients keep well so it’s good all year round.

That's guys I've tried a bit if everything I've got, think I've added too much mustard for ds so has a bit of kick but still taste lovely. Will add some of your suggestions as still have lots of ingredients to make another batch.

Salad cream? God no.

IHaveBrilloHair Sun 05-Apr-20 20:15:30

I do either mayo with custard, or a honey mustard dressing.

we only use yoghurt (egg allergy)
and a spoonful of masala curry powder.

Tell me custard was a typo for mustard! grin

I use mayo, dijon, squeeze of lemon juice/splash of wine vinegar, I also cold- brine my cabbage for a couple of hours as it makes it really nice and crunchy.

homemadecommunistrussia Mon 06-Apr-20 11:37:13

I use mayonnaise for mine, but would accept salad cream, creme fraiche, yoghurt or a combination of. Please no apple though that would just be vile.

ReturnofSaturn Mon 06-Apr-20 11:52:48

I used to do a bit of both. Also added apple.

Makeitgoaway Mon 06-Apr-20 12:08:23

I make it with plain yogurt and a bit of mustard to cut the calories.

IHaveBrilloHair Mon 06-Apr-20 12:51:59

Oh fuck, yes, custard was a typo for mustard!

Longdistance Mon 06-Apr-20 12:59:07

I just use Hellman’s mayo.
White cabbage
Red onion
Black pepper

I worked in a pub kitchen in the 1980s with a very popular carvery. I suppose it would be called a gastro-pub today.
Their coleslaw, prawn cocktail sauce and potato salad were all made with salad cream, maybe to avoid the oiliness of mayo or maybe just to reduce costs!
Anyway they were delicious.

mayo with custard ooh, you’re making me peckish!

Mild curry powder is a nice addition to coleslaw dressing.

LuluJakey1 Mon 06-Apr-20 13:06:56

I make a dressing of no fat fromage frais, wholegrain mustard and fresh lime juice

White cabbage
Red cabbage
Chopped fresh herbs- thyme, dill, parsley, coriander- just whatever

Also sometimes use fresh beetroot and apple.
