Reading about Pile’s coleslaw salad made me crave for coleslaw salad the way my aunt made them. There are really a lot of variations to this salad, but here’s my aunt’s version which brings lots of memories of her in the kichen. This is really a simple version, but the addition of pineapples add a sweet dimension to the dish. This would be perfect for my first entry to the “Waiter, there is something in my…” series with this month’s theme: salads.
Nanay’s Coleslaw Salad
2 cups green cabbage, sliced thinly
1 cup purple cabbage, sliced thinly
1 large carrots, julliened
1 large turnips, julliened
1 can of pineapple tidbits, sliced thinly
1 cup mayonaise
1 tsp pepper
1 tsp salt
Mix all vegetables in a large bowl. In a separate bowl, mix mayoinase, pepper and salt. Add the mayonaise mixture to the vegetables, make sure to coat all of the vegetables. Cool before serving.
While I’ve been looking up on salads, I just realized that the slicer for vegetables for making that perfectly julliened carrots is called a mandoline? I’ve always a mandoline is a musical instrument So I’m taking out my credit cards and off to Amazon.com I go and get myself a nice mandolin slicer. I can’t wait!
