Anyone have any tips? We have never been that imaginative and as we are firing the bbq up this evening I thought we should try something a bit different.

basic cabbage, carrot and onion with mayo but you can add stuff
red cabbage
peanuts
any other nuts you like
tomato ketchup ( i know but it adds a little something)
fennel
dried fruits
chilli
garlic
grated cheese is nice
crumbled stilton or other blue cheese
the list goes on

also I make one with a vinigarette rather than mayo, thats nice as well

The basic plus cheese (cheese savoury they call it in the North East, or at least I think that's what cheese savoury is) is great on burgers.

We're having a BBQ tonight too now the rain seems to have passed!

I have been known to add a little paprika to mine, not a lot, just a bit to give it a bit of an edge.

It seemed here that no sooner did I post BBQ the sky opened in a downpour, but with any luck it is passed.

I do the basic mayo/cabbage/onion/carrot here but I add a good dollop of Dijon mustard to the mayo

Peed down (and quite heavily at times) here for about an hour and it's bright sunshine again now

The older cat still hasn't come to see us since we got home She'll no doubt wander in later and give us a bit of a shout

Well this is what I've done.
cabbage, carrot, red onion, all very thinly sliced.
I then beat an egg, added salt, pepper, mustard seeds, mustard, smoked paprika, rice wine vinegar and sugar, Finally, a slug of olive oil beaten in,
I'll let you know if it is edible later.

Celeraic is supposed to be nice. I'm not keen on raw veg, and I don't like mayo, so unsurprisingly, I don't eat coleslaw! Might be worth trying with a vinegarette, though - Now that I do like.

Yep, I made grated celeriac with mayo and a teaspoon of mustard stirred in. Was good. Used the slightly bigger holes in the grater, not the fine ones.

Making coleslaw from my Kohl Rabi has been a pretty good solution to that particular on-going glut - any other kohl rabi recipes very welcome!
