My Grandma’s Coleslaw!

Every summer my grandmother makes coleslaw that no one can resist.  I have finally gotten my hands on the recipe and I am sharing it so that all can enjoy!  Not only does this side dish have a sweet, tangy delightful taste that accompanies any late summer BBQ but its main ingredient (cabbage!) is a vegetable bursting with important cancer fighting properties.  Here are a few other reasons to try it:

Cabbage is good source of:

  • Vitamins A, B3, C
  • Folic acid
  • Calcium
  • Fibre
  • It favours assimilation of iron

Without further a do, here it is:

  • 1 cabbage
  • 1 large carrot
  • 1/3 cup of cane sugar
  • 1 cup vinegar

Shred the cabbage, onion, green pepper and carrot finely.  Heat cane sugar, vinegar and oil to boil and then pour over the raw veggies.  Put into fridge for a few hoursand enjoy!
