Perfect with almost every meal or delicious simply as a light lunch on it's own is my favourite 'salad' of all - Coleslaw.
You can make it with all sorts of salady crops but my most usually eaten one is the all time favourite lettuce, red onion, carrot and mayonnaise. It's so simple to make and I have all the components in the polytunnel for it to be as fresh as fresh can be. A handful of grated cheese or a sprinkle of salted peanuts takes it to another level as well as adding a good portion of filling protein.
I sometimes add the odd sliced radish, and when I have them grated or shredded Kohlrabi is absolutely delicious (mine are tiny little plants at the moment but they grow quickly).
On hot, hot days when you really don't want too much to eat but fancy something flavourful with a drink at lunchtime I think homemade coleslaw is spot on. But if you don't have the time or inclination to make it yourself a tub of ready made from the supermarket can be added to very easily, this will take it to a more delicious and more pleasing to look at snack or accompaniment.
Just don't fall for buying the much more expensive 'cheesey coleslaw', simply buy a tub of ordinary coleslaw and add some of your own grated cheese just before serving, as well as tasting instantly fresher you will save a lot of money.
