“Live a little!” My husband said, when I had a container of Colman’s Mustard in my hands. “Give this meal some HEAT!”

He’s right that I usually have to dip one, two, then three toes into the water before diving in. In this case, it was just a dab of mustard on my tongue, and soon enough I was shouting, “More heat, more heat!” while I added mustard to my spicy slaw.

Soon enough, we were messy in the kitchen – Cassidy at the helm of the grill with hot dogs and brats, and me at the sidelines – mixing spicy slaw in a large mixing bowl – taste-testing all the while. I have accomplished my first roller coaster and my first public speaking speech within the last few years. Was I ready for Colman’s Mustard? It turns out that I was! Colman’s Mustard is HOT. It’s not throat hot, but it’s nose hot. It’s sinus-clearing hot. That means it’s no mere condiment.

It’s a messy and wonderful star of every recipe show.

You don’t need a lot. The dry and prepared mustards are used in recipes to bring out flavor and heat. Add a pinch here and a sprinkle there. Add a dab here and a teaspoon-full there. No matter how you use it, it creates next-level food.

The thing is, slaw doesn’t usually have heat, does it? When you make it yourself, you make it next level. For me that means local vegetables, high-quality ingredients, and a Hot Mess remix with Colman’s Mustard. We’re all a hot mess sometimes!

And I happen to love it.

(Also, you can use the pickle juice from the accompanying pickles in the recipe and that equals YUM.)

What do you think? Easy enough, right? I was surprised by how much I could tolerate the heat, and then grow quite in love with it. This is the time of year for grilling. This is the time of year for fresh produce. And this is the time of year for stepping outside your comfort zone and tackling a recipe you’ve always wanted to try. Pair this with any grilled meat, or any grilled non-meat, or anything at all. Use Colman’s Mustard for your next get-together, sit back, and watch people love on it.

  1. Oh my your hot dogs and slaw look so colorful and yummy, too. Thinking I may just have to try this soon as we just got a new grill last weekend. We have already done burgers and steak on it. But not hot dogs. So, challenge accepted 😉

  2. Why yes, I do believe this is a keeper. Pinned! I’ve got to keep the fun summer foods rolling, so this will work very nicely! Thanks for sharing your recipe!

  3. I really like the types of different mustards. I like Spicy Brown, Dijon, and Yellow and I like many different mustard brands. But I have never tried Colman’s. I’ve seen it and have been very curious about it. I will have to give it a try.
