So I ran across these recipes today and thought they sounded yummy and EASY. Cause we are all about easy here at Hullabaloo Huddle. Anything to foster peace and serenity while packing up to get to the Dome on Saturdays to watch Tulane football.
I think this recipe one will be PERFECT with the Creole Tea Sandwiches:
Blue Cheese Coleslaw
One package of regular cole slaw mix (14oz)
One package of package of broccoli cole slaw mix
Handful chopped green onions (everything is always better with green onions)
sprinkles of chopped parsley
4 oz of pancetta, regular bacon or turkey bacon
4 oz. crumbled blue cheese
6 oz Hellman's mayonnaise
1 tablespoon of honey
2 tablespoons of red wine vinegar
Toss the slaws together with your green onion and parsley. Cook up your bacon, chop up and let cool and then toss into slaw mix. Put slaw mix into a plastic tub. Now combine wet ingredients for the dressing and put that in a container or bottle. Keep everything cool in your ice chest. Right before serving, toss slaw with the dressing and then top off with crumbled blue cheese.
Now if you want to get fancy and get your veggies fresh and chop them up - that is your perogative. Mrs. Hullabaloo might go that route actually cause I feel that fresh is always tastier. Ina Garten (she of Barefoot Contessa fame) suggests a squirt of dijon mustard and a dash of celery salt. You can swap out the parsley for cilantro (!). I think some chopped walnuts and sliced granny smith apple might even be awesome in here too. Make sure to toss your apple slices in some lemon or lime juice so that it doesn't brown. Anyways Honeys, any free-styling is up to you. Go with whatever you are feeling!
And I just love this next recipe for the Burger Bar Tailgating Menu for the game against the Cooters:
Ranch Cole Slaw
3 cups coleslaw mix
1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese
1/4 cup canned Mexicorn
1 jalapeno pepper, seeded and chopped
2 tablespoons chopped red onion
1 tablespoon minced fresh cilantro
1/2 cup ranch salad dressing
1-1/2 teaspoons lime juice
1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
Combine the veggies, cheese and cilantro. Then mix your wet ingredients and cumin and whip up into a dressing. Pour over the tossed veggies and toss to coat. Refrigerate until serving.
So August practice starts in THREE weeks. and then it's time to start memorizing the starters. I also think I might whip up a Tulane Tailgating Primer to post (where to park, where to pre-party, post-party, what food establishments MUST be visited).
Lots to do to get ready for Tulane Football season y'all!

- This is primarily a Tulane football blog, although I do occasionally comment on all matters Tulane that may or may not be any of my business. I love following Tulane Greenwave football, zing-zang Bloody Marys, hostessing cute tailgating parties, and life in New Orleans. It's fabulous. oh and I adore Mr. Hullabaloo. PS This blog is not affiliated in any way "officially" with Tulane University or Tulane Athletics. It is purely the crazy antics and obsessions of Mr. and Mrs. Hullabaloo who love them some greenwave (I say tee-ay (!) y'all).
