Yesterday I made this spicy slaw to go with pulled pork sandwiches (http://monicacooks.blogspot.com/2010/04/oven-roasted-pulled-pork-sandwiches.html) 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.
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.
