Haitian Pikliz

Pikliz is the Haitian version of the American coleslaw. The only difference is it's spicier. It's almost similar to Kimchi. I loved Trader Joe's version of it but they no longer carry it in stores.  :(

-Hot Peppers
-Juice of 1 Lime
-Badia Seasonings

Thinly slice the vegetables; mix and toss in a bowl; squeeze the lime juice over the vegetables; add garlic, cloves, and seasonings along the way; transfer to a glass jar; pour about 2-3 cups of vinegar to the jar enough to cover the vegetables. Seal the jar and for best flavor let it marinate 2-3 days at room temperature before using.

Pikliz is a great companion to many fried dishes like griot (fried pork), tasso (fried beef), and bannan peze (fried plantains).


  1. I don't like American coleslaw, but this recipe sounds like it could be good. What are Badia seasonings?

  2. I don't like coleslaw either. Badia is the name of the company that makes herbs and spices like seasoned salt, garlic powder, etc… Goya has those mix as well. They are usually found in the ethnic aisle of the grocery store. Hope I didn't confuse you. :)
