On another note, and back to the topic for todays post, the other night we had a really yummy Spicy Mexican Coleslaw for dinner! I am trying to get the through the backlog of leftovers and dubious vegetables in the fridge left over from the festive season, and I seem to have an abundance of cabbage in the fridge. In the past I have not been a huge fan of coleslaw - I never liked the traditional style with the mayonnaise it always seemed a bit heavy and bland. I rediscovered coleslaw about 6 months ago after making a couple of the yummy ones out of the the Revive Cafe cookbooks, and have discovered that it is actually a really versatile salad which can take on any number of delicious flavors and is really easy to make. I often make a bit of a hybrid coleslaw and include roughly chopped lettuce, diced tomato and diced cucumber - and anyone who reads this blog regularly will have noticed a fair few variations on the humble coleslaw of late!
This most recent variation though is made with just a very simple vegetable selection, but the flavor is enhanced by the addition of a spicy mexican sauce which I adapted, based on what i had in the fridge, from a recipe in Dr Libby's latest cookbook (thanks to my darling cousin for my awesome Christmas present!).
