Coleslaw and Potato Salad

This is my mother's recipe for coleslaw.

Ingredients:

1/4 cabbage shredded
1 red onion sliced
1 carrot shredded
1 - 2 cups cheese shredded
Mayo or whipped salad dressing
ground black pepper
celery salt



Prepare all the veggies and cheese:



Put into a large bowl, mix with mayo, celery salt and pepper. Cover and place in the fridge for at least a couple of hours. I like to prepare this in the morning for that nights supper. It keeps a couple of days, not for much longer though. Any left by Monday will be thrown out, and I made this bowl on Friday.



Potato Salad:

The only things I always put in a potato salad are:

Potatoes
Hard boiled eggs
Onion or chives
Mayo
Seasoning



I hard boiled a couple of eggs, and chopped them up. I had potatoes in the fridge that I had FOF-ed that were already cooked, and as I had a lot of chives in the garden I used them instead of onions, and snipped them into little pieces.



I then add some mayo, and seasoning, in this case pepper and celery salt. Mix it all together and pop in the fridge for a couple of hours to chill.



Both these salads are super simple to make and are a lot cheaper and tastier than the bought ones!!!
