Mexican-Style Coleslaw - Easy Recipe

Add a little spice to your life with this Mexican-style coleslaw!  Of course you can make it more or less spicy to suit your taste and it's ideal to serve at a BBQ or just as a change instead of regular coleslaw.

Of course if you happen to have too much time on your hands you can make your own mayonnaise but I'm afraid I don't, and in any case I say good old Hellmanns mayo is the way to go.

Tefal Optigrill - Bacon Wrapped Chicken with Pineapple Pepper and Chilli Salsa

Having recently been sent the Tefal Optigrill I wondered if it really would be as good as they say it is.
But in the short time I've had it I've used it to cook all sorts;  Bacon, Chicken, Burgers, Pork Steaks and Corn on the Cob and every one has turned out perfectly - yep this grill is excellent. 

The Tefal Optigrill uses sensor technology to measure the weight and thickness of different meats to decide how long it will take to cook them.  For steak, the grill alerts you when the meat is rare, medium and well done.  Fantastic as you can take out a rare steak while leaving the rest to continue cooking.

Sponsored Video - Robinsons #GETSQUASHD

Robinsons SQUASH'D is a new and super concentrated squash drink that comes in a bottle so small and flat it will fit in your pocket or bag. Amazingly each tiny bottle contains enough to make 20 drinks.  Just squeeze into a bottle of water to mix.  I must say I think it’s a marvelous invention, the tiny size makes SQUASH’D fantastic for taking to work or on a day out.
Available in three exciting and rather yummy sounding flavours - choose from Orange and Peach, Apple and Blackcurrant and Summer Fruits.  And there’s more good news, they don’t contain any added sugar.  

You may have already heard about #GETSQUASHD but if you haven’t and you fancy winning a GoPro HERO 3 why not enter the competition? 

All you have to do is pop a Robinsons SQUASH’D into your pocket and show everyone where you #GETSQUASHD to be in with a chance to win.  Pop over to the Robinsons GET SQUASH’D website to see all of the amazing challenges already added and add your own.   
Every week the judges will pick the most stunning, surprising and side-splitting entries and the favourites each week will win a GoPro HERO 3

Have a look at the #GETSQUASHD videos already uploaded – the two footballers performing their fantastic foot skills with their bottle of SQUASH’D is brilliant.  You’ll find The King of Rock meets the King of Squashes!   There’s also a woman who made a HUGE glass (enough to make 20 drinks) by using the whole SQUASH’D in one glass.   One guy even manages to make squash from the top of a fairly high building and yes he actually does fill the glass - or how about the keep fit fanatic who fills a glass whilst doing push ups!  What will you do?

Chopped Salad with Mixed Beans and Lemon Dressing

Chopped salad will add a healthy and colourful side to many dishes and is great for serving alongside BBQ food or any other outdoor eating event.  Or, how about serving with a simple jacket potato?  A chopped salad will provide an easy stress free lunch. 

Of course you can add whatever you want to your salad - sweetcorn, celery, radishes, cooked and diced new potatoes and even leftover cooked chicken.  Just add what you want and leave out what you don't!

Also chopped salads are a great way to (perhaps) get the kids to eat mixed beans and other bits and bobs they might otherwise not want.  A dressing of some sort is nice but of course it's up to you.
