Cheese Slaw isn't something I had ever tasted before moving over here to the UK. I hadn't even really considered it. I think it was my friend Jo who mentioned it one day at work when I was working at the Manor and my interest was piqued. Cheese . . . in coleslaw? It just had to be good! I often add chopped dried fruits to my coleslaw, which gives it a lovely hint of sweet. Cheese makes it a bit more savoury. It's very moreish!
I made this the other day when we had the Missionary Zone Leaders over for supper. I always like to have some sort of salad when we feed the missionaries. The girls always like a leafy salad, but the guys are always a bit more fond of coleslaw. Not sure why that is, but, meh . . . what can I say!
I didn't really get a lot of photos of it. Todd hates me taking food photos when we have people over. But trust me when I say this is delicious. I am not fond at all of storebought coleslaw. It's too bland for my taste and too gloopy. I like my coleslaw to have a nice flavour and plenty of texture. Bland coleslaw is a no no for me. Suffice it to say there were no leftovers the other day. One of the guys said to me . . . "Did you make this coleslaw? It's the best I've ever eaten." I was quite happy to respond in the affirmative!
