Coleslaw rounds out any meal. It is simple and inexpensive to make. Coleslaw is best made about an hour before you plan on serving it. Use a food processor fitted with a grating blade to make quick work of preparing your vegetables. Traditional coleslaw is served with a mayonnaise, sugar and vinegar dressing. But you can be creative with your dressings. Add horseradish or Dijon mustard to mayonnaise-based dressings or leave the mayonnaise out altogether for a lighter slaw.

Instructions

  1. 1

    Remove the cover of your food processor and take out the blade. Insert the grating blade and replace the lid.

  2. 2

    Wash your cabbage and remove the outer leaves and any that are discoloured. Quarter the cabbage. Using a sharp knife, cut the core out of each quarter.

  3. 3

    Cut half your cabbage into small enough pieces to fit into the chute of the food processor. Grate in batches. Place each batch in a bowl after grating.

  4. 4

    For a difference in texture, slice the remaining cabbage very thinly using the sharp knife. You can also grate all the cabbage using the food processor.

Tips and warnings

  • You can also use a box grater to grate your cabbage. It takes more time and is a little messier, but works if you do not own a food processor.
  • Grate carrots for your coleslaw using your food processor.
