I’ve tasted Sainsbury’s Taste the Difference Apple, Raisin & Walnut Coleslaw … should you put a pack in the trolley or leave it on the shelf?
Sainsbury’s Taste the Difference Apple, Raisin & Walnut Coleslaw blurb reads: ‘Cabbage, Celery, raisins and apple in a crème fraîche dressing topped with walnuts.’
OK: Yes… most of us can make a decent coleslaw if we have all the ingredients to hand, but often as not… we find that we’re one or two short to make it so that it has that ‘I must have another and another mouthful’ quality. Therefore a trip to the supermarket is required to buy an ingredient that often comes in a size that’s superfluous, which means that your leftovers will end up festering in the fridge or getting stale in the kitchen cupboard. If this is the case, then the best readymade versions are serious alternative.
The tasting note: Coleslaw? You don’t have the time, or have all the ingredients to hand – then Sainsbury’s Taste the Difference apple, raisin and walnut version is well worth a punt. Enjoyable as a lunchtime snack or on your salad plate.
Ingredients: Crème Fraîche Dressing (37%); Cabbage (31%); Celery (16%); Jumbo Flame Raisin (8%); Walnut (5%); Apples (4%).Crème Fraîche Dressing contains: Rapeseed Oil, Crème Fraîche (from Cows’ Milk) (25%), Water, Pasteurised Free Range Egg Yolk, Spirit Vinegar, Sugar, Salt, Cornflour, Mustard Flour.
Can you eat it? Not if you are avoiding milk, lactose, egg, celery, nuts, mustard, raisins and sesame.
Should you put it in the trolley? Absolutely, provided the size and price fits
