Kickin’ Creamy Cole Slaw

Do you include cole slaw on your Thanksgiving table?  I love slaw and I like trying different recipes.  I am always looking for the perfect slaw that fits my craving for a mayonnaise base but with a “kick” included.  Slaw is a casual salad but not too casual for a holiday table!

When you speak of Cole Slaw in America, there is the mayonnaise based, the vinegar based and in the south they also have one with a sweet boiled dressing made with sweeten condensed milk.  I haven’t made the slaw with sweet condensed milk but that is coming!  Funny thing about slaw — everyone has their favorite — mayo or vinegar — mustard or sweet!

This recipe comes from Bobby Flay at the Food Network.  Bobby knows how to put the zip in foods that could otherwise be bland.  It is this zip that makes this my #1 new favorite slaw.  I think you will like it too!
