Hi. It’s Lois at Recipe Idea Shop, telling you about a little different salad, Craisin Coleslaw. It’s made like regular Coleslaw but the addition of craisins (or raisins) makes it chewier and sweeter. It’s a staple at most church suppers—at least in the U.S. Midwest. Have you ever had it? Some people also add nuts to the salad, but I like it best without nuts.
Making this salad is super easy, especially with a food processor. Zip, zip, zip and the cabbage is all shredded. If you don’t have a food processor, you can make it the old-fashioned way, with a box grater. And it doesn’t matter if the cabbage is ground up or actually shredded. My mom made her coleslaw with an old meat grinder. I like it both ways and often make a little bit with a box grater because I don’t want to have tons left over and I don’t want to have to clean the food processor. We also have a mini food processor that works well.
