This coleslaw packs a punch! It’s a spicy, tangy, and creamy but also very simple to make side dish. Buffalo Coleslaw is not for the faint of heart, it takes traditional coleslaw and kicks it up a few notches. This side dish is perfect for summer BBQ’s.
The dressing combines spicy hot sauce, apple cider vinegar, and some mayonnaise. I think a buffalo style sauce is the best for this, but you could make a spicy coleslaw with any pepper sauce. You might want to adjust the amount if using a different brand. Taste the dressing before mixing it in with your cabbage to be sure.
Buffalo Coleslaw is great fresh when the cabbage is still crunchy, but I’ve held this for a couple of days and found that it held up well even as the leaves start to soften in the sauce. This recipe yields 6 generous 1 cup servings of coleslaw and it’s perfect to serve along with Low-Carb Crispy Fried Chicken, or Perfectly Crisp Baked Chicken Wings.
