BBQ Recipes: Coleslaw

You would think that coleslaw is a pretty uncontroversial salad but of course in the Aargan household, pretty much anything can become controversial! I had an idea of how to do the coleslaw and whilst Meg disagreed I went with it (the matter wasn’t helped when my brother sided with Meg later on!) I’ll show you my recipe and then open the floor for debate!


  • One cabbage
  • One large onion
  • Two carrots
  • Approx 300g mayonnaise
  • A sprinkle of vinegar
  • Half a lemon


  1. Grate the carrots.
  2. Roughly chop the onion and cabbage.
  3. Throw it all in a large bowl.
  4. Add mayonnaise and mix well ensuring all ingredients are covered.
  5. Add a sprinkle of vinegar and squeeze in the juice from half a lemon.


Easy peasy with the lemon to squeezy right? Apparently not, as for a good coleslaw you are supposedly meant to grate the onion and cabbage also. I opted for rough chunks as I wanted to ensure that it was crunchy and had texture. Grated or sliced, this is a great BBQ salad or side as part of a main meal. We’ll leave the politics for you to decide on!!
