Brain Dead Simple Southwestern Slaw

Brain Dead Simple Southwestern Slaw

For years, I’ve been blending mayonnaise and Pace Picante Sauce for a tasty, low-fat salad dressing. It just occurred to me that this would be great as a coleslaw dressing. Well … it turns out to be better on slaw than on a regular salad – just seems like a natural. And it’s so easy.

I’ve tried this with other brands of salsa. Some curdle when mixed with mayonnaise. The Pace Picante always blends beautifully. Often I make this without hot sauce and it’s mild but tasty. My preference is to add about 1/4 tsp hot sauce. It will taste milder when mixed with the cabbage, so you might make the dressing a bit hotter than you want the slaw to be.

This is one of my staple recipes. I always have a jar of Pace Picante and mayonnaise, so I can just whip it up in about 2 minutes. Hope you like it!
