Nigella’s Pecan Coleslaw

I’m absolutely loving the BBC Lifestyle channel (180) on DSTV. All cooking shows on one channel, what more could any foodie ask for? Its so interesting watching some chefs when they go overseas and cook various cuisines – like Jamie Oliver in Italy or Rick Stein in the Meditteranean. One of my favourite shows is Nigella Express (same title as her book), as it is similar to my cooking style – simplistic. I’ve just recently found out that she is not a qualified chef and neither did she study food. Her show was created out of her love for food.

Anyway, I’ve tried her pecan coleslaw recipe – which I’m very happy with. Its my new favourite braai dish!

What you need:

  • 1 cabbage
  • 2 carrots
  • 2 celery sticks
  • 4 spring onions
  • 200g mayonaise (I used salad cream)
  • 4T buttermilk
  • 2T maple syrup
  • 2t cider vinegar (I used plain vinegar)
  • 100g pecans

Using a food processor, shred cabbage and celery sticks. If your processor can grate, carrots, all the better – gets done in seconds. Slice up the spring onions. Toss together.

In a seperate bowl, add the mayo (in my case, salad cream) and buttermilk and mix. Add maple syrup and vinegar and mix. Using your salad utencils, toss it all together.

Lastly, chop your pecans by hand and not in the processor – it has to be roughly chopped. Toss into the coleslaw.
