Ingredients from my garden

The ingredients used in this recipe are special to me because they come from my own garden. Beets and carrots, grown with care and love by me, are the heart of this salad inspired by the classic coleslaw.

The fact that I had the opportunity to plant them, take care of them and watch them grow, brings a note of emotion and joy in every spoonful. When I prepare this salad, I not only enjoy their fresh and crunchy taste, but also the satisfaction of knowing that so much abundance came out of a simple tiny seed. It is an experience that connects me with nature and fills me with gratitude for the wealth and beauty that my garden offers.

The classic coleslaw recipe – the source of inspiration

The classic coleslaw recipe is a fresh and crunchy salad that combines shredded cabbage with grated carrots and a creamy dressing. It is a popular choice for picnics, barbecues and other festive events, due to its simplicity and refreshing taste. Cabbage and carrots are thinly sliced/grated and mixed together to create a crunchy and slightly sweet base.

The classic dressing consists of a combination of mayonnaise, vinegar, sugar and spices such as mustard or celery seeds. This dressing is poured over the cut vegetables and mixed well to cover each piece in an even layer of rich and creamy flavors.

I was inspired by the classic coleslaw recipe, but replaced chopped cabbage with beets and celery. I also added a special ingredient, pickled purslane, a recipe that I love and recommend! Of course, you can make the recipe without this special ingredient.
