Growing up, I can remember Mum’s dinners often comprising of a side of coleslaw, rich and creamy from the condensed milk dressing. I also remember my sister, Amy and I offering to make it and sneaking cheese into it…I think we had just discovered that everything tasted better with cheese.
We used to squabble about onion in the coleslaw (amongst many other things); I loved it and Amy utterly despised it. I didn’t realise at the time but slicing the onion as thinly as possible to hide it from my sister was developing my knife skills.
This slaw is a little fancy so I dropped the ‘cole’. I insist that you try this dressing – although it was a perfect match for the pork belly you could make a batch and keep it in the fridge to dress up any salad
