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.

- 4 medium carrots (organic)
- 4 eggs (organic)

For the dressing:
- 2 tbsp mayonnaise
- 1 tbsp cider vinegar
- 2-3 tbsp soured cream or yogurt

- Boil the eggs for about 12-13' so they are as hard as they can be. When finished boiling, pour cold water over and set aside.

- Peel the eggs and grate them when cooled. Add to the cabbage.
