Spicy Pepper Slaw Recipe

Spicy Pepper Slaw Recipe

“I love coleslaw, but wanted to jazz it up and make it just a little healthier. This recipe not only makes a good side dish, but it’s also great as a relish on a chicken sandwich or burger. Jalapenos give it just the right kick.” —Cheryl McCleary, Kansas City, Kansas
