Condiments. You can take ’em or leave ’em, am I right? Relish on a hot dog, mustard on a hamburger, ketchup on fries; they all work, but you have to admit that can get boring after awhile. I’m sure there are those days when your taste buds are just itching for something new, something tasty, something different.
It’s time to make your mouth happy.
Slawsa is here.
What is Slawsa?
Let me start by telling you what Slawsa is not. Slawsa isn’t your ordinary run-of-the-mill condiment. It isn’t a one-trick pony and it isn’t a flash in the pan.
Now for the good part. Think of Slawsa as a comingling of cabbage-based relish and salsa. Don’t let the sound of that combination fool you; Slawsa is absolutely delicious (not to mention fat-free, cholesterol-free, gluten-free, kosher and vegan). Slawsa comes in four flavors: Original, Spicy, Garlic and Fire. Personally, so far my husband and I have gobbled up the Original and Spicy. Next on our list is Garlic and Fire.
Lest you think Slawsa is just for hot dogs or spread on sandwiches . . . think again. Slawsa can be as versatile as you dare to be in the kitchen. Speaking of kitchens, I recently got creative in mine and created this Meatless Meatloaf with Slawsa for Meatless Monday. For more recipes, visit the Slawsa website.
The Brains Behind Slawsa
Julie Busha, Owner and CEO of Slawsa, took an old family recipe and brought it to the masses. Perhaps you saw Julie’s appearance on ABC’s Shark Tank (Season 5, Episode 9, 11/15/13). While the Sharks decided not to invest in Slawsa, that didn’t stop the one-person dynamo that is Julie. She is a recipient of Progressive Grocer’s 2015 “Top Women in Grocery” award and is a proponent of helping other women entrepreneurs succeed.
Where can you buy this top shelf condiment? It’s currently in Krogers, Ingles, Wal-Mart, Harris Teeter, Lowes Foods, Albertson’s, Publix, Piggly Wiggly and more. Check out the Slawsa store locator for the store nearest you. If your neighborhood store doesn’t carry it, cause a ruckus! (Don’t worry; you won’t be labeled a troublemaker; simply print out THIS FORM and present it to your local grocery store manager. You can also find a link to the form at the bottom of the store locator page).
