Coleslaw is a simple salad that comprises of finely shredded cabbage and carrot. It is commonly dressed with mayonnaise or salad cream and usually eaten as sides to Jollof rice, fried rice, and other rice dishes. Most times coleslaw is favoured to Nigerian salad because of the easy preparation over the latter. Find below how to make Coleslaw.

Preparation time: 10 minutres

Meal type: Sides, Appetisers
