Coleslaw is a must on every Christmas buffet table, so why not do something a little different and make this Butternut Squash Coleslaw? The butternut squash added means it’s an easy way to get some extra vegetables in to your diet and it adds some extra crunch too.
There have been a lot of sweet recipes on the blog recently (it is Christmas after all), but why don’t we mix it up a bit with a savoury dish? This coleslaw is something a little different from the usual variety, but really easy to make and the added crunch from the butternut squash is a bonus, and extra vegetables. Yay!

I love a Christmas buffet. Well, I love a buffet in general, but a Christmas buffet is just something a little special. I go all out and make about 4 times as much food as is needed, and we are eating leftovers well in to the new year. But, it’s a tradition and who am I to break tradition? Coleslaw is always on a buffet table, and if it isn’t then is it really a buffet at all?
Coleslaw is cheap to make, it’s quick and easy, and it’s easy to add different flavours to. Have you tried our Mexican Coleslaw? The options are literally endless when it comes to making coleslaw, but at this time of year we like to make a Butternut Squash Coleslaw and then throw on loads of pomegranate on top because it adds so much colour and little bursts of flavour.
I know we kind of put a downer on the whole Christmas leftovers sandwich when we were promoting our Christmas Leftovers Pasta Bake, but we do still have a lot of love for the leftovers sandwich and it really wouldn’t be Christmas without one. There is enough leftovers for both, right? If you are going to make a leftovers sandwich, then be sure to make some of this coleslaw to go with it. The crunch of the coleslaw goes perfectly with some turkey and stuffing in between two chunks of bread. Just what you need to cut through all that chocolate.
