Carolina Red Slaw

For our annual family gathering on Independence Day this year, I was asked to bring slaw. I had originally planned to bring my “famous” Asian Slaw, but then decided it would be the perfect time to try something new (and with a more American flavor). After some Google research on barbeque red slaw, which is a common dish in North Carolina, I created this pink hybrid between the bright red barbeque slaw and my friend Dave’s pool room slaw (which is mostly mayonnaise with a hint of ketchup). Enjoy!

  • 2 bags shredded cole slaw mix (14 ounces or so)
  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise*
  • 1/4 cup ketchup*
  • 2 tbsp sugar
  • 2 tbs Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp paprika
  • 1/2 tsp onion powder
  • Black pepper to taste
  • Dash of hot sauce (optional)

Mix together all dressing ingredients in large bowl; taste and add additional amounts of anything you’d prefer. Toss slaw mix in dressing, cover and refrigerate for up to 24 hours.

*(Note: If you’d prefer a more red-tinted slaw, increase the ketchup and decrease the mayonnaise.)

    And now I’m craving this. Because who DOESN’T want cole slaw at 10:30 at night? 😉
