Nice slaw - we enjoyed the sweet/spicy combo. Very good over pulled pork, as suggested! Thanks for sharing!

Excellent! Nice and spicy. I only used 1 tbsp of sugar. I think more would be too sweet.

Was most happy to make & try this coleslaw, but with a couple of changes ~ I cut in half both the amounts of hot pepper sauce & red pepper flakes ~ I don't mind a kick, just not a HUGE TROUNCING! And as made, we really enjoyed the slaw! Thanks for sharing the recipe! [Tagged, made & reviewed for one of my adopted chefs at the tail end of the current PAC]
