This spicy crab coleslaw was one of my favourite brown bag lunches in the past little while. It was fast to throw together and outrageously delicious.
I just used a pre-cut coleslaw mix, which includes carrots and red cabbage. I mixed up a spicy mayo, but you could make your own or use a store-bought variety. My current version includes Miracle Whip, Tabasco-style hot sauce, a bit of seasoned sushi vinegar and a bit of white sugar. I made my mayo in a couple of minutes, tore up some thawed fake crab, and mixed it all together with the cabbage. By the time I was eating it for lunch several hours later, the flavours had had a chance to meld and the crab and spiciness had completely infused everything.
This would make a great company salad or potluck item. Or, if you don’t mind envious stares from co-workers, a perfect lunch for the office.
