OMGosh. Just when I thought I knew everything about coleslaw.
I must admit, I seriously out-did myself this weekend.
Do you know how I know? The husband was rendered speechless.
He would.not.talk. Just eat. Constant eating until all the food was gone. (p.s. I love a healthy eater). But, he would.not.talk.
Which has happened in our life together, like, next to never.
But, when he was done (and the food was long gone), he had plenty to say about how over-the-top fantastic it was with its explosion and mix of flavors. And, he was right. (Did I just really just say that?)
It all started with the most succulent, no-fork-necessary, tender, baby back spareribs that were so irresistibly good and tender, they literally were falling off the bone as I took them off the barbeque.
But. When we bit into the WOOHOO hot, fresh and crispy Jalapeno Coleslaw… Well, we.were.done.
Have I told you that, now, we both have a new best friend?
Light, crispy, spicy, hhhooottt, low-fat, low-cal, guilt-free, crispy, crunchy, spicy, fresh jalapeno, onions and cabbage will also have you at hello. (Yes, it was worthy of saying crispy twice).
The good news is?
Eat as much as you want. It’s guilt-free eating after all.
p.s. I would like to say this serves 4, but just the two of us managed to polish the entire thing off in a single setting. You’ve been warned.

Yay! I’m crazy about all things honey and this one is no exception *-* Guess what I’ll be having for lunch tomorrow… Great recipe!
I’m a honey lover too – with the bite of jalapeno – yum!

I love coleslaw and this simple twist is awesome. Will try this recipe. Thanks
It’s a great recipe Louise – especially if you like spicy food. It’s really fresh and crunchy. Enjoy and bon appetit!
Thank you for sharing this recipe! I found it via Pinterest. Made it last night and we loved it. So refreshing. I loved that it wasn’t a mayo based slaw. My boyfriend couldn’t stop eating it. Just after a few bites he asked that I make it again.
I’m so glad you liked it – it’s a new favorite of ours – perfect for the summertime!
