Sometimes It's Best to Take It Every Way That You Can Get It...
I finally pulled my Cajun remoulade sauce recipe out of its hiding place in a corner of my blog the other day. I added several of my recipes that are made all the better with my favorite south Louisiana condiment. They are many and they are made often around here. But, most of them are a little involved and take a bit of planning.
However, as I was writing the post, I knew in my heart that there was one more that I needed to get to y'all. And this one was the EASIEST one. There's not a lot of bother after you gather the necessary sauce ingredients. And, there are only three veggies that are required. So, you're sure to pull this all together quickly and easily.
Honestly, this remoulade slaw is so impressive and scrumptious that you'll likely want to double, or even triple the recipe, for all-week meal planning. Or your next food-focused event.
The taste and textures of New Orleans remoulade sauce are something that you have to experience for yourself to truly appreciate. Since there are pops of Cajun trinity bits, garlic and parsley, there's a built-in mini crunch factor that complements the shredded cabbages and carrots perfectly. There's also citrus, ketchup, two mustards and a bit of chili sauce. So, there's quite a bit of collective creaminess going on in, as well.
And, once you put it all together and let it chill for a while, the flavors and textures of this remoulade slaw just get better with each passing day in the fridge.
