Zesty Coleslaw

The headache I have running this blog is when I put the title on each posting. 

Sometimes the food already has a name, but some are new born of my improvisation from my whim. If you check  my old entries, you’ll find the title as below: 


Main ingredients + sub ingredients + mob ingredients + extra ingredients that were quietly waiting to be a compost + salad/soup/rice/whatever you can tell from the pic. 


Thinking back when I named them, I still have a headache but I can’t help my weird way of naming them. But believe me, I want to give a special name, but my brain isn’t that responsive. But today’s recipe already has an ultimate name that everyone knows right after they saw the pic: Coleslaw! 


What the heck does coleslaw mean? 

Well, that means cabbage salad in Dutch: koolsla, checked by me from Wikipedia! (I’m sorry to all the professors who taught us wikipedia is an unacceptable source. But since I’m not a student anymore, I’m freeeeee!!)


Anyway, here is a coleslaw seasoned with zesty lime juice! If you pair up with deep fried food or BBQ, you’ll thank yourself for making a good choice!


<Today’s Recipe> 

 Zesty Coleslaw



  • 1/4 head of cabbage – shredded
  • 1/2 medium carrot – shredded
  • 1/4 large cucumber – shredded
  • 1 large radish – shredded
  • 3~5 jalapeno pickles – chopped
  • ⅓ large lime for juice
  • Some garlic powder
  • Some salt and pepper
  • Some chopped parsley for garnish



Toss all ingredients together. Sprinkle some parsley on veggies and enjoy! 

Coleslaw has a variety of flavor: vinaigrette, mayonnaise, or you can improvise! This time I used lime juice so you can expect me to make mayo version, at least, pretty soon! Until then, enjoy my zesty version of coleslaw!
