Hot & Crunchy slaw

Yields6 Servings

 ½ Head of White cabbage,Finely sliced
 1 Large carrot,Peeled & grated
 ½ Red onion,Finely sliced
 200 g Mayonnaise,Any kind you like
 80 ml Buttermilk
 ½ tsp Corse black pepper
 2 tbsp Of your favourite hot sauce,Optional, add hot sauce until desired heat level is achieved or leave out if you like it mild

1

Place the grated carrot between two sheets of kitchen paper and squeeze to release most of the carrots liquid, this prevents it leaking into the slaw making it to watery. To a large bowl, add the sliced cabbage, grated carrot and sliced onion. Mix together.

2

In another bowl mix together the buttermilk, mayonnaise,black pepper and hot sauce if using. Pour over the crunchy vegetables and mix well to combine everything in the dressing. Check for seasoning, I find mayonnaise usually quite salty and don't find it requires further salting.
