This 5 Ingredient Super Simple Slaw is quick to make and tastes wonderful with a range of dishes. Perfect for BBQ season when you want a little crunch with your meal.
I love the super simple slaw. It’s crunchy, fresh and so adaptable to go with a range of meals. We started having it with pulled pork burgers and I love the difference between the hot soft pulled pork and the crunchy salad.
The best slaw to go with pulled pork and BBQs
If a pulled pork burger takes your fancy you can find my recipe for pulled pork cooked in Wimbledon Brewery beer here. I love pulled pork burgers with this salad. The soft meat and crisp fresh salad is just beautiful. I’m hungry just writing this now! Note to self make these burgers this week.
This is so easy to make and you only need 5 ingredients to create it. Red cabbage, red onion, carrot, parsley and red chilli. So if you don’t like chilli it’s a 4 ingredient recipe. How simple right!
This is my base recipe for slaw but can be easily added to. Sometimes I add tomatoes and chilli when I want it to have more of a kick.
A creamy dressing to go with red cabbage slaw
This creamy dressing goes really well with the slaw too. It might look like a lot more ingredients to make a dressing but there mostly store cupboard items. (Well they are in mine.) The dressing will last a few days in a sealed jar in the fridge. So if you have any spare left over after enjoying the slaw pop it in a jar and pop in the fridge.
