Bayou's Mardi Gras Slaw
This is a wonderfully colorful cole slaw perfect for celebrating Mardi Gras or any other time. It is presented in the official colors of Mardi Gras: purple, green, and gold. The sauce is a perfect blend of sweet and tart, with a little cayenne pepper for bite. Do not dress the coleslaw ahead, or it will become soggy.
To make sure you get the consistency you prefer, begin by tossing the vegetables with less dressing, adding more until the slaw is just right for your tastes.
