Homemade Coleslaw & Guacamole

It’s another food post and I wanted to share two of my favourite homemade dips; coleslaw and guacamole. The one thing I love most about making dips at home is that I get to choose what goes in and what doesn’t.

The first time I made coleslaw at home, I was impressed; it tasted better than the coleslaws you get from the shop. When it came to making guacamole, I found that every time I made it at home, my recipe was changing; I experimented a lot with it and still do.

Coleslaw

Ingredients:

Half a white cabbage

Half a red cabbage (also known as purple cabbage)

2 carrots

Mayonnaise

1 teaspoon apple cider vinegar (optional)

1 teaspoon olive oil (optional)

Salt & pepper to taste

Method:

  1. Peel and wash all the vegetables.
  2. Thinly chop the cabbages and grate the carrots. You can also grate the cabbages or chop them up in bigger pieces if you’d like a crunchy coleslaw.
  3. Once the vegetables are done, put into a large mixing bowl and add the mayonnaise. It would be ideal to put it in little by little and mixing to see if you need to add in more.
  4. Finally, mix in the salt, pepper, olive oil and apple cider vinegar (olive oil and apple cider vinegar are optional, however, the ACV gives it that kick and you only need a little bit as it is quite strong).

Guacamole

Ingredients:

2 avocados

1 tomato

1 clove of garlic

Sea salt to taste

1 teaspoon of olive oil

1 tablespoon of lemon juice

Handful of fresh coriander (optional)

Method:

  1. Peel, wash, and roughly chop all vegetables and herbs.
  2. Stick all ingredients into a blender and whizz until you are satisfied with the consistency. If you’d like your guac extra chunky or if you don’t have a blender, you can use a fork to mash up the ingredients.
  3. Once you are happy with the consistency, pop it into a bowl, add in the lemon juice (stops the guac from turning brown) and give it a mix.

You can serve these dips with nachos, or pop some into a homemade burger/wrap or put a few spoons into a salad. Whatever you fancy! If you end up with some leftover, you can put the dips into airtight containers and into the fridge, it will last around 4/5 days.

If you do try out these recipes, don’t forget to tag @womanishaffairs on social media, I would love to see if you recreate recipes that I share with you.

Have you made your own coleslaw or guacamole before? What’s your favourite dip? Let me know in the comments. 🙂
