Chicken Sausage Subs with Creamy Dijon Slaw

You couldn’t ask for an easier weeknight supper! Crunchy, creamy dijon slaw provides the perfect contrast to savory pre-cooked chicken sausage. These are also great for a weekend lunch. 

Prep Time:  10 minutes
Cook Time: 6 minutes
Yield: 4 Servings


  • ½ cup shredded carrot
  • ½ cup shredded red cabbage
  • ¼ cup thin sliced shallot
  • 1 TB minced parsley, plus extra for garnish
  • 1 TB low fat mayonnaise
  • 1 TB Dijon mustard
  • ¼ tsp cider vinegar
  • 1/8 tsp sugar
  • 4 pre-cooked sweet Italian chicken sausage
  • 4 hot dog buns


Combine carrot, cabbage, shallot, and parsley in a small bowl. Whisk together mayonnaise, mustard, vinegar and sugar and pour over mixed veggies. Toss well.  

Grill sausage over medium-high heat for 5-6 minutes or until lightly browned. Toast buns lightly. Serve sausage in bun topped with slaw and garnished with extra parsley.


To speed prep feel free to use 1 cup bagged cole slaw mix. We like the sweet and spicy combination here, but just about any flavor pre-cooked chicken sausage would work! You can also make the slaw up to 1 day ahead of serving.
