When we keep gap in between participating in challenges, it feels like a long time. I was thinking that I haven’t been a part of the Shh Cooking Secretly Challenge for a long time, and then realized that after participating in March for the pancake challenge, due to the current situation, there was only one month with a challenge in between, which I did skip. If you remember, I did mention that each of the participating bloggersPin get a chance to suggest a theme every month. For this month, Kalyani suggested that we make summer salads. Before I go further, Mayuriji has updated this challenge with a new logo from this month. It actually feels good to see a challenge thrive for a long time and get uplifts as well, such cases are a rarity now. From beginning with under Priyaakka, this challenge has traveled interesting paths and themes to come this far. πŸ™‚

 

OK, so for this month’s salad challenge, I am paired along with Poonam. This is the first time I am doing this challenge with her. One thing I love about her blog are the sharp, crisp, colorful pictures she has for each of her recipes. They are really eye pleasing and would tempt you to explore her blog. Considering the current situation, we decided to give each other simple ingredients. She gave me mayonnaise and lettuce, and immediately it reminded me of the coleslaw I have made a few times, clicked and kept ready in my drafts. Thanks to the challenge, it is finally coming to the forefront!

 

“Coleslaw”, which can be simply called slaw as well, is a side salad with mainly cabbage as its ingredient. I was thinking it to be of American origin but to my surprise, Wikepedia tells me it is Dutch! I can’t blame myself since this salad is introduced to many of us through KFC. Hehe… Everybody in the house loves coleslaw. Apart from the grating job, this cold salad comes together in no time. Allowing it to rest for the maximum time does notches to up its flavor. Usually, store bought coleslaw has only cabbage and carrots, but I like to add some grated ice-burg lettuce to give it a slight green tinge in between. I mix mayonnaise and yogurt in my dressing, to make it a little less guilty, but if you are in a mood to feel guilty, then please use only mayonnaise. The mustard sauce is optional but I love the flavor it adds to the coleslaw. This salad is also on the slightly sweet side, so adding some sugar does the trick. This is a really simple recipe that goes amazingly well with broast chicken and some French fries – it is like match made in foodie heaven! Off to this recipe… Meanwhile, do check out what Poonam made with her ingredients as well…

    What an incredible journey it has been for this group since we all began with Priya. I’m not a big fan of mayonnaise but somehow don’t mind it in coleslaw, though I too mix it with yogurt. Interesting that you also add lettuce, will try that out next time I make slaw. Love to have it with french fries.. yes strange combo but yum.

    1. Rafeeda AR Author says:

      My dad would always eat coleslaw slathered in between a bun, and we would be, eww… but now I like dunking bun into the liquid that it leaves behind… hehe… Thank you so much Mayuriji…

    I have never added mayo to my coleslaw, I will try that next time and see how it changes the flavour. I love the idea of a bit of icerberg running through it as well.
