Memorial Day Weekend! The family will arrive in droves tomorrow after Mass. As usual, our 25 acres and sprawling living space will be the gathering place...have I mentioned that I love my big family?! Rick is a great Sous Chef (this will probably get me in trouble - lol) and Chef in his own right and handles the meat and most breads for our food extravaganzas. One of his favorites is making pulled pork. This year I decided to come up with an accompanying coleslaw recipe that not only compliments this tender, savory meat dish but can also stand on its own.
I introduce you to my newly created Zesty Coleslaw for Barbecue. Eat it alone or join the southeastern trend of putting it directly ON your sandwich!
NOTE: I cook for a large family so you might want to make half.
- 2 pkgs Coleslaw mix
- 2 c Hellmann’s mayonnaise
- 1 c horseradish spread (comes in a squeeze bottle)
- ½ c honey
- 4 T celery seed
- Seasoned salt (I use Lawry’s) and pepper to taste
- Optional – one bunch of green onions, finely sliced
Combine ingredients and mix thoroughly. Add coleslaw mix, stir, and chill. Tastes fabulous with (or on) pulled pork sandwiches!
