FWIW, I checked for various cole slaw recipes and found
84, only one of which included ketchup/catsup (Cajun coleslaw--a Justin
Wilson recipe which also has Worchestershire sauce, Louisiana hot sauce,
onions and green bell peppers) and none that included chopped pickle or
pickle relish. There are a number that omit the mayonnaise dressing in
favor of various vinaigrettes.

I'm not sure I'd care much for coleslaw on corned-beef, but it's delicious
on a pulled-pork sandwich, at least in my opinion.
