How-To: Creamy Coleslaw

Coleslaw is like an evergreen salad that is not green in colour though. Seriously, nothing beats this crunchy homemade coleslaw. Every bite is just so refreshing.

I do not know why but I have this impression that people do not enjoy coleslaw as much as I do.   Recently, I made Pull Pork with a very small portion of coleslaw to go with it. How wrong I was!! All my friends enjoyed the slaw so much that the bowl was swept clean including the sauce!! This only shows how good this coleslaw is. 😀  The two factors that distinguish whether the coleslaw is good are the crunch and the flavour of the dressing.

Mummy's Kitchen

Hi! My name is Josephine Go. I blog at in a segment called Mummy’s Kitchen. I love to use fresh and natural ingredients in my cooking to promote healthy eating. Some of my recipes may not be in line with the traditional methods of cooking to the extent that some of the ingredients are different, but hopefully new recipes are being created in my style. I certainly hope that what I do will help guide kitchen first-timers on how to cook their first meal as well as further equip kitchen veterans with new recipes. My loving husband and two wonderful children are my best guinea pigs and critics. They have enjoyed (or endured) the food that has been served to them for all these years. Mind you, I did not know how to cook or ever knew that I could cook till I got married. So there is hope for everyone. If I can cook, you can cook. You will not know how good or talented you are until you put your hand in the plough.
