I made this with a little extra spice (didn't de-seed the jalapenos, and substituted one habanero for a jalapeno). It tasted a little unbalanced, so I threw in a can of mandarin oranges. Perfect! I'm happy I found this recipe. I have salads like this at potlucks and never tried making my own until now. Yum!
I made half a recipe and this is a great slaw. DH really liked this one. We still have some left and kept the slaw and dressing separate. Served with Recipe #43101, Recipe #252395 and Recipe #314587. This made for a delicious meal and will make often.
