I made this coleslaw to go with some homemade veg burgers. the leftover coleslaw, we had them in sandwiches.

I have used only cabbage and spring onions in the coleslaw and did not add carrots. You can add grated carrots if you prefer. I used a store brought mayonnaise to make the coleslaw. You can use homemade too if you have it.

This is an easy coleslaw recipe and gets done quickly if you have food processor for shredding the cabbage. Otherwise shredding the cabbage with a knife also works well.

Coleslaw can be had as a side dish like salads or even added as filling in burgers and sandwich recipes. When I make burgers or sandwiches, I usually end up making coleslaw.

If you want to use coleslaw in a sandwich then you can check this Coleslaw sandwich. The other way we like coleslaw is with some french fries wrapped in bread or buns and dressed with some mustard and coleslaw.
