Cajun Coleslaw Recipe


Coleslaw came over with the Dutch via New Amsterdam, now known as New York. The word Cole means cabbage and Slaw means salad. The original Dutch salad was most likely served hot.

There are many regional variations of what has become one of America's favorite side dishes. This coleslaw recipe is Cajun style, complete with hot sauce to remain true to its name.

Consider serving this with fried catfish, chicken or BBQ style ribs.


5 Tablespoons mayonnaise
2 Tablespoons yellow mustard
2 Tablespoons olive oil
1 teaspoon Louisiana hot sauce
2 Tablespoons ketchup
2 Tablespoons olive oil
3 teaspoons salt
1 teaspoon garlic salt
1 Tablespoon wine vinegar
juice of medium size lemon
1 large cabbage, shredded
4 bell peppers, sliced
2 onions, medium, chopped


1. Put mayonnaise and mustard in a bowl large enough to hold complete mixture, but shaped so that the mixture can be beaten with a fork.

2. Beat mayonnaise and mustard until combined. Add olive oil slowly, beating all the time. Beat until mixture has returned to the thickness of original mayonnaise.

3. Add Louisiana hot sauce, continuing to beat.

4. Add ketchup and keep beating. Add salt and garlic salt, beating all the time.

5. Add wine vinegar (this will thin the sauce down). Beat this thoroughly, adding the lemon juice as you do so.

6. Taste for salt and pepper. Place shredded cabbage, peppers, and onions in a large salad bowl. Pour sauce over and toss well. This should be done about an hour before serving.
