    This slaw sounds fantastic! I am sure it must be on the spicy side. Would love to make it. But what are Cajun Spices? A mixture one can buy? A home made version would be great. Thanks!

    • There is a brand called Louisiana that makes a Cajun spice blend, which is available in many markets. Texas A&M has a general recipe posted on their website which makes a pretty big quantity: 26 ounces table salt; 5 tablespoons cayenne pepper; 3 tablespoons black pepper; 3 tablespoons onion powder; 3 tablespoons garlic powder, 3 tablespoons chili powder; 1 tablespoon thyme; 1 tablespoon sweet basil; and 1 tablespoon bay leaf.
