Apple ColeSlaw

Coleslaw is originally a cabbage salad dressed with mayonnaise or buttermilk, but in some times cream or sour cream also can beused in the place of mayonnaise. The traditional Coleslaw (in Netherlands, German) is made with Shredded raw cabbage and dressed with mayonnaise or buttermilk and a small dash of  vinegar. In other variations other vegetables  like onions, radishes, peppers and carrots, sweet corn broccoli and fruits like apple and pineapple can also be used in this salad. Generally coleslaw is eaten as a side dish but the dish comes under the category of salads. This salad is one of my favorite salad,I like to have this with sliced  bread, like place the salad in between two slices of bread like a sandwich. This slaw sandwich will be a perfect breakfast for me with a cup of green tea, or I can have this with roti for lunch. If you are in diet use sour cream(low fat) or hung curd(which is made by skimmed milk) for dressing.

                                                      26th edition of Blogging Marathon, this month I missed my first week Theme. Because of some personal issues and this is the second week. For second week I took Salads/ soups as my theme. It's very hot here looks like already summer started. I prefer to have more salads in summer, because salads  make your body cool in the hot weather. So here is my first recipe for my salads theme in the second week of the  Blogging Marathon.
