Reaper Slaw

What does the Reaper serve with BBQ? Reaper slaw, of course!

This slaw complements your BBQ while adding a fiery kick to top it off. Don’t let it fool you: creamy, tangy, and sweet, it seems harmless at first, but then the heat sneaks up on you and reminds you what’s in it.


  • 1 cup mayonnaise
  • 1/4 cup apple cider vinegar
  • 2 tbsp sugar
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp black pepper
  • 1/2 tsp celery seed
  • 1/2 tsp dill
  • 1 Carolina Reaper


  • Grind the Reaper into a fine powder and shake through a fine mesh strainer to remove large chunks.
  • Whisk together all of the ingredients in a bowl.
  • Add to your favorite cole slaw base – for this we just used chopped cabbage and grated carrots.
