It is rare that I will make something at work all day and then come home and make it for dinner. Welcome to one of those rare days.
Today’s gastronomical delight is Sriracha Cole Slaw. Really. Cole slaw with a spicy bbq sauce base. Creamy, crunchy, and mildly spicy – the bbq sauce is tempered by the mayo. It’s one of those dishes that keeps me going back for more. And more.
And it’s so easy to make.
I’ve been using the Sriracha BBQ Sauce on everything, from ribs – last night – to chicken, pork, and a tri-tip on the grill. It just works. And, knowing that it just works, I knew it would work as a salad dressing, as well.
Sometimes ya just know.
I made a hefty batch and tonight, put it on burgers. The burger was a total mess to eat. Just the way a good burger should be. There’s enough left to have it a few more times, because… well… It’s really good.
Sriracha Cole Slaw
- 1 bag shredded cabbage
- 1 bag shredded carrots
- 1 red onion, julienned
- 1 1/2 cups mayonnaise
- 3/4 cup Sriracha BBQ sauce
- Salt & Pepper, to taste
Slice onions into strips. In a large bowl, mix carrots, cabbage, and onions.
Add mayonnaise and Sriracha BBQ sauce and mix well.
Taste for seasoning and add salt and pepper, as desired.
Tonight’s dinner was remarkable in another way, as well. Not the tater tots covered in cheese – I get those now and again… No… It was actually buying pre-shredded cabbage and carrots! That’s almost a first, for me!
Will wonders never cease?!?
