Odd as it may be, I adore coleslaw.
I love traditional coleslaw as much as coleslaw with vinaigrette, spices, or pickled.
This particular recipe is my attempt at a coleslaw served at one of my favorite restaurants, Banderas.
It’s crunchy, bright, hearty, light, salty, and extremely nutritious. I mean, it haskale in it! Isn’t that suppose to be like the healthiest food on the planet?
This would be a great side dish of for just about any type of protein.
SO check out the video and let me know your thoughts. Enjoy!
