Spicy Slaw

It's summer (yay!) and I've been craving a sweet and savory kind of cole slaw for a few days now.  I love the fresh, crispness of a just made slaw and I find it incredibly filling.  Yesterday when I was at the grocery store I grabbed one of my favorite pre-shredded slaw mixes - with broccoli, cauliflower, carrots and red cabbage.   


But what I forgot to get was my favorite dressing.   Desperate to figure something out with what I had on hand, I whipped together a quick little dressing that really pleased me.  It was light, sweet, hot.  Perfect.  



My secret ingredient.  Actually, this "find" is turning into my secret ingredient in quite a few items lately.  I don't know what I did without this jar of hotness before.  


And since the kids didn't want any and Ward was at work, I was sure to enjoy every last bit of it at dinner tonight.  Yes.  It was that good.  

quite satisfying and I didn't have to share at all

Spicy Slaw Recipe
  • 1 Bag of pre-shredded slaw mix (or if you really want to, shred up you favorite mixture) 
  • 1/4 c red wine vinegar
  • 1/8 c olive oil
  • 1/8 c brown sugar
  • couple of dabs (or more) of hot chili sauce 
Mix up wet ingredients with sugar and pour over the slaw mix.
