Print Recipe
This is a lovely way to make a plain coleslaw slightly more sexy. This slaw makes a great lunch when paired with some cold chicken. It is a great side dish with grilled fish or chicken. Although you can make this dish fresh, it tastes best if you make the salad 1 day in advance and garnish it before serving.

Roasted Dutch meal

Roasted Dutch meal
Print Recipe
A standard Dutch meal comprises of potatoes, vegetables and meat. My grandmother used to boil the potatoes and veg while frying the meat. I simplified this by cooking all ingredients in one baking sheet in the oven. While the oven does all the work, I have quality time with my sons.
