In case your are looking for a Coleslaw recipe perfect for BBQs, burgers and hotdogs, this is THE one. It is super creamy and crunchy, exactlyĀ how a perfect Coleslaw should be. Plus, I’m totally in love with this sour cream base dressing. You can’t believe how delicious it is!

So how about giving it a try next weekend? I promise you, your BBQ parties will not be the same once you introduceĀ this yummy recipeĀ to everyone.

    • Ā¼ cup of plain yogurt
    • Ā¼ cup of apple cider vinegar
    • Ā¼ cup of olive oil
    • Ā½ teaspoon of salt
  • Salad
    • 1 small cabbage head (green, red, or a mix), chopped
    • 2 large carrots, shredded

  1. Dressing
    1. Add all ingredients in a small bowl and whisk until well combined.
    2. Reserve.
  2. Salad

For more saladĀ recipes check our Summer SaladsĀ series page! It’s full of delicious recipes to enjoy this summer.

Today, I brought you another very easy salad option: Guacamole. Ok, I’m not sure if we can say guacamole is a type of salad, but it is fresh and has veggies, so it’s something there in the middle for me. šŸ˜›

This is extremely simple to make. Just a matter of chopping all ingredients and mixing everything up. It alsoĀ works great in salads or as a side for any spicy dish, like a beef chilli or spicy chicken with a dollop of sour cream. YUM!

Ingredients
  • Ā½ small red onion, chopped
  • 1 fresh red chilli, sliced
  • 3 ripe avocados, diced
  • 1 bunch of fresh coriander, finely chopped
  • 1 ripe tomato, diced
  • Juice of 1 lime
  • 2 tablespoons of olive oil
  • A pinch of salt
Directions
  1. In aĀ bowl add all ingredients and mix well. Make sure to leave some avocado pieces, as we donā€™t want them totally mashed.
  2. Itā€™s done! Serve immediately.

    2. Stir everything until well combined and reserve.

    1. Heat a non-stick frypan over medium heat, add walnuts and cook for a few minutes until they start to turn golden brown. Transfer to a plate and give it some time until it cools down.
    2. In a large bowl, add the pears slices, parmesan cheese, rocket leaves, and the cooled walnuts.
    3. Pour in the dressing and toss everything enough to coat.
    4. It’s done! Serve immediately.
