Jubilee Savoury Coleslaw

Well we’ve very kindly been invited to 2 Jubilee parties! The first one we’re going to is a BBQ. Mostly probably it will be a wet one, so the boys will stand outside next to the BBQ and the girls will (sensibly) be staying inside. Rain or shine we will all need feeding, so I thought I’d brake up the protein intake by making a yummy coleslaw, Jubilee styley.

Jubille Savoury Coleslaw


half a red cabbage

3 grated carrots

1 white onion finely chopped or grated

squeeze of lemon


salt and pepper

seeds- poppy, sesame, pumpkin, sunflower linseed

handful of chopped fresh herbs such as parsley, coriander, mint, chives


Just put all your chopped/grated veg in a bowl, add enough mayo to coat everything lightly then add your seasoning, lemon, herbs and mix. Add a tablespoon of spice mix like Gourmet Spice’s Fire pit blend for a bit of a warm kick.

Very pretty coleslaw! It certainly brightened up the buffet table. Very yummy as well. Think maybe next time I will just use half an onion, it was a bit eye watering for me! The seeds were a great idea in it and I also added some pine nuts too. I will definitely be using this recipe again, homemade coleslaw is so much more interesting.
