Melissa's Hot Slaw

Memorial Day means outdoors eating! Between Hot Slaw, Cole Slaw, Cole Slaw Dressing and this one...Melissa's Hot Slaw, you're bound to find one that meets with your idea of ease of preparation. With flavors ranging from mild, but good to hot and hoo weee, your crowd will be asking YOU for your recipe!  I'll be fixing a vat of the  Hot Slaw for Monday no doubt, but this is a very close second when I want a little spice.

This slaw recipe is one of Melissa's specialties. The first time I ate it we were attending her husbands "frog leg" fry. I'll spare you the details of the other meats prepared. Let's just say life on the farm can run towards the "different." I'd like to say the slaw was the most memorable part of the night, but you'd have to know this group of folks!

  • 1 head cabbage, chopped*
  • 1 vidalia onion, chopped (or purple onion for more color)
  • 1 bell pepper, chopped
  • 1 large red delicious apple, chopped
  • Palm full of sugar
  • Salt, pepper and cayenne pepper to taste
  • Slaw dressing


    Mix all ingredients and add cole slaw dressing. Melissa recommends T. Marzetti’s and I’ve also included a homemade slaw dressing in the “Miscellaneous” section.

    *For quick and easy, use a bag of shredded tri-colored cabbage and carrots.
