Top 10 Salad Recipes

9. Coleslaw Salad

A salad which couldn’t be missed. Coleslaw salad. I think we can also see this kind of salad around Filipino celebrations but not that frequent.However, a certain fast food chain present in the Philippines usually serves this one. Commonly, coleslaw is served as a side salad; it accompanies the main course.

From its name, we can assume that this dish did not originate here in our country. The word coleslaw comes from the Dutch term koolsla, which means cabbage salad. This salad is primarily consisted of finely shredded raw cabbage with a salad dressing, which is either vinaigrette or mayonnaise. The one with vinaigrette may benefit from the long lifespan because of pickling.

As a side dish, coleslaw can be eaten with other food, such as fried chicken or barbecued meats. French fries or potato salad may also accompany it. Moreover, this salad can be used as sandwich spread, along with other ingredients.

With the colorful vegetable combination, coleslaw may seem a healthy choice. But do not be deceived. Although it provides you with carrot, cabbage, pineapple and raisin (as in this recipe), it still contains a certain amount of calories, which may not be good for you. Also, please take note how much of that fatty mayonnaise did you add. Nevertheless, this salad is a good source of fiber and other vitamins. The key is moderation. Eat in moderation so you can still enjoy it.

This recipe is again easy to follow. You can also have this prepared in advance to serve for sudden visitors. You will just mix everything in. Your dressing will do its work. Kids will surely love this one due to its colorful appearance. Do not take those raisins out; they are good for your body. Enjoy!
