This sounded so good I was so excited to make this for one daughter who is vegan and the other who is gluten-free but it was a disappointment. It just tasted like a spicy ketchup sauce....UNTIL...the next day my husband added some mayonnaise (no longer vegan or gluten free now) but it became ADDICTING! Spicy dressing was more like French dressing now. When I make this again I will reduce the ketchup to half what is called for. I had also substituted Agave Nectar for the white sugar. Read More

I have been searching for years for this recipe. This slaw is served at a local BBQ restaurant and it is so good. It does have quite alot of "heat" spice-wise to it so decrease hot sauce if you would like. I served it for 35 people and had alot of requests for the recipe. One recipe fed this many people.
