Shared by Sharon Wencel of Austin, Texas, this quick and colorful slaw is laced with ranch dressing. “It's a family favorite and comes together in minutes, but chilling for an hour helps to blend the flavors,” she offers for those with time to plan ahead.

"I first made this coleslaw 6 years ago when I saw it in Simple & Delicious. My grandmother gave me a gift subscription because I was newly married and didn't really know how to cook. My husband loved it!! I make it often in the summer and now it has gotten around our family and friends so when there is a baby shower or picnic I am always asked to bring my "spicy coleslaw!" People tell me they are not big on coleslaw, but this one they like!! Thanks for a great recipe that now brings to mind great memories!"
