Pikliz

Rooted in Haitian culinary tradition, Pikliz is a fiery condiment with a rich history and a bold flavor profile that's sure to leave you craving more. A spicy cabbage slaw, Food with Roots’ Pikliz will revolutionize your taste buds. Our Pikliz recipe was passed along to us from our Haitian family in Florida after many years of gaining trust and culinary experience up to Mama Clervil’s par. 


Traditionally made with shredded cabbage, carrots, onions, and Scotch bonnet peppers, Pikliz packs a punch unlike anything you've tasted before. Utilized as a way to preserve vegetables, this zesty concoction has become a staple in Haitian cuisine, adorning everything from grilled meats to rice and beans. 


But don't let its fiery reputation intimidate you – our Pikliz is more than just a spicy slaw. Its tangy, vinegary kick adds depth and complexity to any dish, elevating flavors and taking your culinary creations to new heights. Use it as a topping for sandwiches, a side for grilled meats, a garnish for tacos, a way to balance any fried food–you can serve our Pikliz as a way to spice up nearly all of your favorite dishes. It is versatile and addictive, and once you experience our Pikliz, it is guaranteed to become a pantry essential in no time. 


We are excited to bring Pikliz to market to help diversify the shelves with food that has cultural identity, integrity, and is just plain delicious.
