Creole Coleslaw

Well y’all, I just did my post on pork barbecue.

 The informal survey that I conducted indicated that y’all prefer coleslaw on top of your barbecue.

The coleslaw I used for my barbecue is the vinegar based kind. If you want to make this really easy, buy the bag stuff like I did.

 Just in case you haven’t noticed I am kinda lazy like that.

If you decide you want to chop your cabbage, then use equal parts sugar and vinegar. You can then add what other vegetables you want. Perhaps what is in your garden?

What ever you do, make it your own.

Make it uniquely yours.

Make it with love.

 I added creole seasoning because I thought it would give my coleslaw extra kick. If you don’t think you will like that sort of thing, then just don’t add it.

Dressing

1 cup sugar
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup vegetable oil
2 teaspoons Creole seasoning
1 cup vinegar

1 bag coleslaw mix

1 bag broccoli slaw mix

Preparation:
For this coleslaw, I combined a bag of broccoli and regular coleslaw vegetables that I purchased at the market. If you like, you can make your own.

Combine coleslaw in a large serving bowl.

In a saucepan over medium heat, combine remaining ingredients; bring to a boil. Simmer, stirring, until sugar is dissolved; pour over vegetables and toss well. Cover and refrigerate until thoroughly chilled.
Enough slaw for 8 to 10 servings.

Peace be with you,
Veronica

    Thank you Janet. It is a great recipe for potlucks, no mayo is sometimes better on hot days.

    This sounds great, even if I’m not sure what Creole seasoning is…I presume that Cajun seasoning might be similar?

    Yes Mistress of spice, it is Cajun/Creole seasoning the brand name I used is Tony Chacheres. It is also really good on fries!

    You know, I love coleslaw so much and have never made it at home! I guess it’s one of those things I always took for granted because I always have it as a side dish! This looks awesome though… fresh and scrumptious!

    I love slaw recipes, and I like the kick creole would add. Slaws are great because you can add almost anything to them, and they are a nice change on top of a sandwich as you’ve done here. Yum!

    I’m bringing pulled pork for 50 this weekend. I think this will be the perfect dish to accompany.
