My mums famous coleslaw that everyone loves. It's her must bring salad to anyone BBQ.


  • 1/2 savoy cabbage
  • 1-2 onions, finely diced
  • 1 bunch radish
  • 2-3 carrot
  • 3-4 celery stalks
  • 1/2 jar mayonnaise (PRAISE)
  • 1 tbsp sugar


  1. Using shredder function of Food Processor - pass through the cabbage, radish, carrot and celery. Collect it all in a large bowl (we use a boiler). Add in the diced onion and mix.
  2. Ensure there is an even variety of colour. You can always add more carrot, or radish etc. It really depends on the size of your ingredients from the start. Once you are happy, stir in the mayonnaise a tablespoon at a time to ensure a good coating. Stop once it is all covered and not too wet but not dry.
  3. sprinkle the sugar over the top, cover in glad wrap and place in fridge for a few hours. After this time, give the coleslaw a good stir, the vegetables will have started to soften and there will be juice.
  4. Place into serving bowl or container for fridge storage.


Coleslaw is definitely an art form. Just make sure you have an good amount of each of your vegetables. Trial and error is the key.

  • Not really a fan of coleslaw but hubby is so will pass this recipe onto him so that he can have a go at making it as a side for his steak.
    Thank you for sharing.


  • OMG I love this recipe. I’ll skip the radish as it doesn’t like me though. Thank you for such a delicious coleslaw recipe.


  • Yum. Thank you for sharing. I need to try it as I am looking for some good salad.


  • It does sound like the KFC coleslaw which I really enjoy, I use the light version of Praise so hope that works as well.


  • Reminds me of the kfc coleslaw. Looks perfect for picnics!


  • I have never thought to put radish in. Very interesting!


  • Simple. However, I’m happy to buy the coleslaw pack at Coles and just add salad cream. Less wastage in our house.


  • That’s how I make my coleslaw but minus the radish. None in family likes radish much. Sometimes I crushed some bacon bits to add the crunch. Just to be different.


  • Ohhh I bet the sugar brings the perfect balance, yum.


  • I’ve never thought of putting radish in coleslaw. Thanks I’m going to try that :)
