Cajun Slaw (by Ayesha)

I take very little credit for the coleslaw. This super easy recipe – though marginally tweaked by me – is from a “The 100 Greatest Cajun Recipes” by Jude W. Theriot. By the way – if anyone out there loves Cajun food and isn’t sure where to start, I highly recommend this book.

cajun slaw

serves 6-8

Here’s the recipe (with my modifications alongside):
1 large head cabbage, shredded (I also add half a red pepper and half a yellow pepper – deseeded and thinly sliced)
3 whole green onions, minced (I use 1 red onion – way more flavor – thinly sliced)
cup mayonnaise
½ cup sour cream (I start with ¼ cup and add more if the dressing is too thick)
2 Tbsp. sugar
2 Tbsp. fresh lemon juice
2 Tbsp. pickle juice (I use dill pickle juice)
1 tsp. Tabasco (I generally add a couple more tsp. for kick)
1 tsp. salt
½ tsp. black pepper (I also throw in some whole peppercorns)
½ tsp. cayenne pepper

1. slaw
Mix cabbage, yellow and red peppers, and red onion in a large bowl. In a separate bowl, whip the remaining ingredients with a wire whisk until smooth. Pour over the cabbage mixture and mix until well combined. Chill. serve, and enjoy!
