I don't remember how this recipe came about. I seem to remember making it for a BBQ dinner with the family. It was a huge hit with Mom and dear sister back then. I love the sweet heat in this slaw. The honey and rice vinegar adds just a hint of sweetness. They also balance the heat of the pickled jalapenos. The cilantro is also a great ingredient in this slaw, adds lots of flavor and freshness. This slaw is so fresh and light, perfect for a BBQ, fried fish or on tacos. That is my plan for this slaw tonight. It is going to add crunch to my Piri Piri Salmon Tacos. So I hope you will give it a try and don't forget to check out the tacos too.
