Red cabbage, carrot & egg coleslaw

A coleslaw with egg, red cabbage and carrots, on a white plate, with onion rings

This carrot, red cabbage & egg coleslaw has to be one of our favorites too. This salad is packed with goodness and could makes such a nice sandwich filler. Whenever I want something really fast for a lunch, something that doesn’t come out of a can, it is fresh and made from scratch, I make this. 👌 😋

I often add grated celeriac and it give it such a nice taste twist. Kids love it too. It goes fabulously with a falafel or as a side salad to any barbecued meat or fish.

It is just fabulous.
