Remoulade is a delicious cool and crisp side dish—perfect for everyday or special occasions. To the French it’s an elegant coleslaw made with a homemade mayonnaise. We’ve lightened it up without sacrificing flavour.
Serving with curry? Add some Indian spices such as garam masala, a little curry, and turmeric to the remoulade mixture. The flavours and colours are outstanding.
