How to Make Raisin Coleslaw

Raisins are a great addition to Cereals, pastries, and my recent favorite…salads. Raisins with Corn Flakes (Check), Raisins with Oats (Check), Raisins with Cakes & Pies (Check) and finally…..Raisins with salads (Double check). The thing is, I never thought adding raisins to simple salads would taste so good but on this particular day I decided to try something different and it turned out impressively Fantabulous. It gave this simple coleslaw a burst of sugary sweetness.

  1. Dooby, I have a problem with mayonnaise and the likes(bama and co) the mere mention of it makes me want to puke and its embarrassing when I have to reject salad in public cuz of this, any help? Back to the issue, I love raisins so much! That's what I pick out in cakes*covers face* you should try fresh grapes with your cereals too! Bliss. I'll def try this! Cheers to the weekend

    1. Hi Amaka, you could try mixing a little sugar with the mayonnaise before adding it to the coleslaw. This makes it sweeter and tastier or Better still, you could also try other brands such as heinz salad cream to give your coleslaw a sour sweet taste. Thanks for the suggestion, sounds really nice. Would definitely try it out :D.
