Lexington Slaw

When I first read through this recipe for Lexington slaw (where I found it, I can’t recall) I thought someone had lost their mind. Ketchup? In a slaw? Huh? What? How’s that going to work?

Well, it does work, and it works very nicely in fact. The tomato flavor isn’t overwhelming and it’s really a great change from your normal vinegary slaw. The dressing is thin, so it’s not like a thick creamy sauce. The chili powder adds a good earthy southwestern kick, and the hot sauce finishes the deal. I wouldn’t be afraid to add more hot sauce than the recipe calls for.
I make a lot of slaws. They can’t get much easier to make, and often I have most of the ingredients on hand. Lexington slaw is just another great example of a great slaw.

Also try my tangy coleslaw.
