    This coleslaw is not only deliciously spicy, but it's also vegan-friendly. Cabbage, lettuce, pepper, onion and tomatoes are tossed in a spicy salad dressing. It's the perfect side dish to serve at summer barbecues.

    this recipe was prepared for buffet service at the culinary school I attend, and it received high remarks from guests and students alike.  -  15 Apr 2001  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    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.  -  26 Sep 2002  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Very Good! When I saw lettuce and ketchup in the list of ingredients I was skeptical but had to try it. I'm so glad I did. This was delicious!  -  01 Mar 2009  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
