Cayenne pepper adds an earthy kick to the honey mustard vinaigrette in this fresh side dish. The slaw offers a crisp counterpoint in our Pulled BBQ-Chicken Sandwiches and is also delectable served solo.


  • ½ cup apple-cider vinegar

  • 2 tablespoons whole-grain mustard

  • 2 tablespoons honey

  • Pinch of cayenne pepper

  • 1 pound shredded or spiralized carrots

  • ½ small head red cabbage, cored and shredded (4 cups)

  • ½ cup thinly sliced scallions (from 4)

  • Kosher salt


  1. Combine vinegar, mustard, honey, and cayenne in a small bowl. Toss together vegetables in a large bowl; season with salt. Drizzle with dressing; toss. Refrigerate at least 1 hour and up to 4 hours before serving.
