Cajun Rainbow Slaw

Boy, this Cajun rainbow slaw has some kick! If you’re a fan of horseradish you’ll be all over this salad. If you’re not a fan of horseradish, cut the amount in half and you’ll still get to enjoy a great salad! I make a lot (and I do mean a lot) of slaws and this one is a pleasant change from the usual vinegar- or mayonnaise-based versions.Cajun Rainbow Slaw

My favorite way to eat a good slaw is heaped on top of a smoked pulled pork or brisket sandwich. I love the contrast between the crunchy slaw and the tender meat. You just can’t beat it.

Also try my Sriracha slaw. Just like this Cajun rainbow slaw, it packs a good bit of a kick.
