I needed a coleslaw recipe for my pulled pork and this was perfect. I did cut down the cayenne to 1/2 tsp and it was still quite spicy great for the sandwiches but a bit much as a stand alone slaw. I will definitely make this again. Thanks Read More

Wonderful with pulled pork on a sandwich; great as a side dish. I mixed green and red cabbage with one carrot grated. Omitted the celery seed. Also cut down the cayenne to between an eighth and a quarter of a teaspoon - plenty of zing without being too hot. Will definitely make again. Thanks! Read More

Turned out great but was really spicy (especially the next day). We will try it again but with much less cayenne. Read More

This is such an interesting sauce! The pesto really gives it something special. I completely took out the cayenne pepper, not because I don't like spice but because my pulled pork was already a little spicy and I wanted this to balance it. It was FANTASTIC. My husband also noted that the dressing would definitely have other uses too, not just for slaw. He mentioned having it on burgers, or on a leafy salad! Read More
