Swedish pizza salad

Late last month we visited relatives in Newcastle for a long weekend. We had a lovely time! One night they made delicious home made pizzas for dinner, and these were served with 'Swedish pizza salad'. Errr, what? They explained that they knew some Swedish people who referred to coleslaw as 'pizza salad', as apparently in Sweden coleslaw is often sold alongside pizza. Why not? So last night, when some Canberra friends invited us for home made pizza, this salad went along.

The ingredients were cabbage, carrots, spring onions, and a dressing made of a combination of mayonnaise and natural yoghurt, plus pepper and salt to taste. (Which reminds me ... have you seen That Sugar Film? Well worth a look. If you use commercial mayonnaise, check it's not riddled with hidden sugars. The brand I use has 1% sugar. Phew.)

Oh, and here's an easy pizza recipe too ...


Update: January 2016

We visited the same rellies in Newcastle over Christmas and again enjoyed 'Swedish pizza salad'. Anne's salad bowl and utensils are much more elegant than mine so here's a pic ... note that this time we included red cabbage. Delicious, nutritious, and very colourful.
