Horseradish Cole Slaw

I saw an interesting recipe for a cole slaw that had horseradish in it, and it got me thinking. I haven't put horseradish on much aside from gefilte fish in quite a while. And I needed to buy some prepared horseradish anyway since Passover was just around the corner.

I used to use President's Choice horseradish mayo in mashed potatoes to make what I called "wasabi mashed potatoes." Meredith likes horseradish on roasts. I actually can't remember the last time I made a roast.

Anyway, I'm quite picky when it comes to cole slaws. I don't like them too creamy or too sweet, so I had to do my own thing. I also had to use my fancy-pants Rickard's Sweet 'n Hot mustard. The horseradish I bought wasn't very hot at all, which was a little disappointing, but it was still tasty and didn't hurt our guest.

Next time, I might consider using the PC horseradish mayo as part of the recipe instead of using prepared horseradish.

  1. I always like coleslaw. This is a nice addition of horseradish :)

  2. I also recently saw a sesame wasabi cucmber salad somewhere. I'd like to try a similar dressing in a cole slaw!

  3. You can't remember the last time you made a roast because- you have never made one - at least not for me :(

  4. The addition of horseradish to the dressing sounds tasty. I am going to try this when I make coleslaw again.
