This Australian coleslaw is a bit unusual from what we are used to in America but great for the hostess who thinks “outside the box.” The original version had hot peppers in it, but I don’t do spicy, so I left them out.
Applesauce is often used as a substitute for fats or sweeteners, as well as an additive for moisture. Using it in this recipe gives this banana bread a sweet moistness without making taste like apples.
There is something about coleslaw that reminds me of spring and summer. Maybe because it goes so well with barbecue dishes such as chicken and pork, which are often served this time of year. Some say this recipe tastes almost like a certain chain restaurant’s slaw.
I first learned how to make tuna casserole in 7th-grade cooking class. I still have — and use — that recipe, although I’ve modified it, many times. This recipe is just another variation, and it makes a great option for a Friday meal during Lent.
