SRC: Spicy Slaw

The Secret Recipe Club's Group A needed a little bit of help this reveal, so I stepped up to cook from BCMom's Kitchen, a blog written by Anna. Before I left Group A, Anna actually had my blog and blogged about my rhubarb focaccia. She enjoyed it! Now it's my chance to return the favor and shine the spotlight on her blog and recipes. What fun.

Anna laments that in this age of fast food and busy schedules, home-cooked meals seem almost a thing of the past. So she aims to find and share recipes that are not only good, but EASY! Many of her recipes here can be prepared ahead of time and almost all use ingredients you probably have on hand. I have bookmarked to make her Coconut Lemon Bars, Spicy Avocado Chicken, and Oriental Closelaw

But for today I decided to adapt her Spicy Slaw she posted that was originally made by her friend Ricki. I simplified, added more herbs, and took out a few of the "hot" ingredients as my boys' palates still border on preferring mild to medium versus spicy.


  • 2 C thinly sliced green cabbage
  • 1/2 C chopped fresh cilantro
  • 1 T fresh chopped oregano
  • 1 t fresh chopped tarragon
  • 1 t minced fresh garlic
  • 1 large tomato, finely chopped
  • 1/2 C sweet onion, finely chopped
  • 1/2 C caper berry juice
  • 3 T caper berries, chopped
  • 1 T capers
  • 1/4 C mayonnaise
  • 1 t vinegar
  • pinch of crushed red pepper flakes, optional

 Mix all ingredients in large mixing bowl. After mixing, let it sit for 30 minutes or so (if you can!) to let the flavors blend.  Then mix, again, before eating.


  1. I was going to say that, even though the word spicy is in the title of the recipe, this isn't really spicy, but I'm not really the one to ask. I like spicy! Anyway, hope you liked it - and now I really need to make some!

  2. I love a good fresh slaw. Blessings, Catherine

  3. This looks like a refreshing side for some of those hot days that are on our horizon! Great SRC selection....visiting from Group B.

  4. i love seeing new recipes for slaw- such a great dish in the summer. yum!

  5. I love slaw and I'm not sure what caper berries are versus capers?
