Spicy Slaw

Yesterday I made this spicy slaw to go with pulled pork sandwiches ( for a party (17 people). 

The pulled pork and spicy slaw are recipes from Tyler Florence. I've made the pulled pork a few times now and it’s always a hit at my parties. 

 I’m not a big coleslaw eater, but I loved this recipe! It’s the best slaw I've tasted. I was glad I cut the cabbage amount in half. I have leftovers, so this recipes make a huge batch. 

Spicy Slaw 
1 head green cabbage, shredded [I used half, 1.52 lbs] 
2 carrots, grated [I used one] 
1 red onion, thinly sliced [I used half] 
2 green onions, chopped [I used one] 
1 red chile, sliced [I used a green chile] 
1 1/2 cups mayonnaise 
1/4 cup Creole mustard [I used Dijon]
 1 tablespoon cider vinegar 
1 lemon, juiced Pinch sugar 
1/2 teaspoon celery seed 
Several dashes hot sauce Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper 

Combine the cabbage, carrot, red onion, green onions, and chile in a large bowl. 

In another bowl, mix the mayonnaise, mustard, vinegar, lemon juice, and sugar; stirring to incorporate. 

Pour the dressing over the cabbage mixture and toss gently to mix. 

Season the coleslaw with celery seed, hot sauce, salt, and pepper. Chill for 2 hours in refrigerator before serving.
