SOMETHING FOR NOTHING : Cheaty Coleslaw


I adore coleslaw, particularly with a jacket potato. It's just one of those perfectly simple food combinations. Traditionally, coleslaws can be deceptively high in propoints/kcal, but not my Slice-of-Slim version!
This delicious salad is 1pp for the whole amount, which works out to 0pp/approx.85kcal per portion and is very quick and simple to make.



I've found a really cheap and cheaty way to make up the basis of the coleslaw with no shredding or chopping to be done! Sainsbury's sell this 700g huge bag of stirfry veggies for £1. It has shredded cabbage, carrot and onion like a traditional coleslaw but also contains beansprouts and chinese leaves. I find this makes the coleslaw really refreshing. The only additional vegetables I add are a few sliced spring onions.

NB There is some controversy about eating raw beansprouts. Click HERE for a link to an NHS advisory article about groups most at risk. If you feel unsure, stick to traditional carrot, cabbage and spring onion options.

If you use this bag of vegetables, it makes 4 generous portions.

For the dressing:(For 4 servings)

4 tablespoons Hellmans Lighter than Light Mayonnaise
1 teaspoon Artificial Granular Sweetener
1 tablespoon Seasoned Rice Vinegar
(or White Wine Vinegar)
Black Pepper



In the base of a large mixing bowl, measure out the mayonnaise.



Mix the vinegar, sweetener and pepper into the mayo, blending to a smooth mixture.



Gradually add the veggies including the spring onions to the dressing, coating evenly until everything is thoroughly mixed together.




Serve with cold meats, grilled chicken or fish or a simple jacket potato for a delicious, filling meal.

Hi Janey
Will this work with fat free yogurt? I don't like mayo or salad cream at all!

Hi Carol-yes, fat free yoghurt would be equally delicious! Add the vinegar and sweetener or some lemon juice-yum! x
