Quick and Easy Carrot and Cabbage Coleslaw Made in a Microwave
All you need to do is cut the vegetables, microwave for 4 minutes, and mix. It's a great coleslaw for people who would like to eat a lot of vegetables even when they are busy, and even for people who don't like carrots.
Mince the carrot and place in a heatproof dish.
Mince the cabbage as well, and place in the Step 1 dish. Add the water, loosely cover with plastic wrap, and microwave for 4 minutes at 600 W!
When they are cooled off, lightly drain the excess water. Add the mayonnaise and vinegar, and mix well.
Adjust the flavour with salt and pepper. Sprinkle with parsley if you like, and done.
I also like to season my coleslaw on the saltier side and add macaroni for my family.
Mixing in corn or mixed vegetables is also delicious.
If it's too much trouble to mince the vegetables, you can shred them or cut them with a slicer.
Story Behind this Recipe
I just came up with this recipe when I felt like eating coleslaw but I didn't have enough time to make it. My kids love it when I add character-shaped pasta, so it became our dish to help them get more vegetables. Give it a try when you are tired of normal salad.
If you don't like a strong vinegar flavour, use a small amount. It's also delicious to add minced onion or cucumber if you like.
