Swanky, Sexy & Spicy Slaw
 
Ingredients
  • 2 tbsp deli mustard mustard
  • 1 tbsp red wine vinegar
  • 1 tbsp freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 tbsp minced fresh red chili (you can use whatever you want up to habanero but this seems to work the best)
  • ¼ cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 6 cups cored and shredded red & green cabbage
  • 1 large red or yellow bell pepper, diced or julienned
  • ⅓ cup chopped scallion
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper
Instructions
  1. To make the dressing, whisk together the mustard, vinegar and lemon juice in a small bowl, along with the garlic and chili. Add the oil a little at a time, whisking all the while. You can also use a hand blender and it will actually cream like mayo, still less fat! Swanky and Sexy!
  2. Combine the cabbage, bell pepper, and scallion and toss with the dressing.
  3. Sprinkle with salt and pepper and refrigerate until ready to serve.
  4. Let the slaw rest in the fridge for at least two hours. The cabbage will also soften a bit and exude some juice. It is best with the sandwich to use it within 2 hours.
  5. You can let it sit longer, up to 24 hours, if you like. If it looks like it, drain the slaw before continuing or use a slotted spoon. If you hand blend the dressing it won't be as wet).
