How to Make Pink Coleslaw


Many of us are up to our ears in fresh vegetable from our gardens. If you are looking for a delicious coleslaw recipe to help use up some of that cabbage than you may want to try this.

I used to not be real big on coleslaw until I started making it at home.

The flavor is SO much better when made from scratch verses the varieties you purchase in the store.

If you don't want your coleslaw to be pink, just don't add the beets to it.

Coleslaw Recipe


Shred or grate 5 cups of cabbage

Chop 2 apples

Shred or grate 2 good sized carrots

1/2 cup red onion (chopped) or if you prefer 3 green onions (chopped)

2 beets (shredded or grated)

2 stalks of celery chopped up

1 cup of mayo

Honey ( 1/4 cup, or add to your taste)

2 tablespoons cider (apple) vinegar

1/2 teaspoon of pepper

1 teaspoon of salt

Add all the vegetables into a large bowl. Now mix all the other ingredients into a small bowl until incorporated well. Just add your mixture to the vegetables, stir until coated and enjoy !

* If you want a smaller batch, just half the recipe !

I'm going to try that coleslaw!As to the ciartnlo, I too am unable to grow it.I don't have a salad spinner and I used to wrap it in a paper towel, but now, when I bring a bunch home from the store, I rinse it and cut off about 1 inch from the bottom, then store in a glassful of cold water on a shelf in the fridge. I usually change the water every day or two and it lasts for over a week.
