Fruity Coleslaw

Coleslaw with a difference? Why not! This fruity coleslaw recipe tastes really fresh and sweet, perfect side dish any night of the week! So quick and easy, just mix it and go. Trust me you will never want to buy readymade coleslaw again.

Remember, Remember the 5th of November. Yay! Bonfire night has arrived, I am a total sucker for fireworks! There’s nothing like staring up at the sky, open mouthed, with the awe of a child, marvelling at the dazzling displays overhead.

Since we are lucky enough, to live on a hill, we can see our whole town below us and all the little firework displays in people’s back gardens. We don’t even need to leave our house! So, it’s ideal with the boys being a little too young for big, noisy displays. Sparklers on the balcony and a BBQ if it’s not raining this year it is! BBQ food goes so well with a side of coleslaw any time of the year.

It’s also my little sister’s Birthday! So “Happppeeeeeee Birthdayyyy Zo” Ironically, Zo spent most of her childhood being completely and totally petrified of fireworks and pretty much anything that went “Bang”. For her, being born on the 5th of November was more of a curse than a joy….fireworks were totally out of the question as a birthday treat, as were balloons and party poppers…. You realise just how many things make a “bang” for celebrations when you’re trying your hardest to avoid them!

So, have a happy evening all, keep safe, enjoy the displays and make yourself a big bowl of coleslaw to go with it all!
