This carrot and raisin coleslaw is such an easy recipe to put together. It takes just 10 minutes to make this delicious creamy coleslaw and it’s healthier than shop bought too!
Folks with summer well under way and hopefully plenty of hot sunny days this carrot and raisin coleslaw is the perfect healthy salad to serve with dinner.
This is such a simple coleslaw recipe and tastes amazing.
Its got just the right amount of creamy sweetness and a great cunchy texture.
You’ll find this recipe isn’t drenched in mayonnaise either. So you can actually still savour the vegetables!
There’s no cooking required and the recipe requires minimal ingredients.
I’ve used a light, lower calorie mayonnaise and a little cider vinegar to create the creamy tangy sauce.
No sweetener is needed either.
The raisins add the sweetness and you can add more to your carrot and raisin slaw if you felt it wasn’t sweet enough.
Whilst this easy coleslaw is a perfect accompaniment for your BBQ’s or salad, it can be enjoyed for all year round too!
For instance it goes really well with cold meats like turkey or chicken.
So why not also use this recipe to liven up any festive left over turkey?
We love this family carrot raisin coleslaw. There’s plenty to go round so I hope you will love this easy recipe too!
Tips For Making Carrot And Raisin Coleslaw
- I use a food processor (see equipment below) in order to shred the fresh cabbage and carrots quickly.
- If you have a mandolin you could use that (carefully) to shred the cabbage and a hand grater to grate the carrots.
- If you do not have a food processor, mandolin or hand grater or are limited on time you could buy bags of already shredded cabbage and carrots from your local supermarket.
- You could add other fruits like diced apple or sliced seedless grapes to change up the flavour here if you wanted to.
- Check the seasoning again, prior to serving if you have left your coleslaw in the fridge.
- I like to add a little tabasco sauce to spice my coleslaw up a little. Feel free to add that too if you wish!

Carrot And Raisin Coleslaw Recipe
Whilst you can serve your carrot and raisin coleslaw immediately I do recommend allowing at least one hour in the fridge to let the flavours marinate together.
You can keep this coleslaw in the fridge for up to 2 days.
