Sweet and Spicy Coleslaw

Let me tell you a secret--I'm not a big fan of traditional coleslaw!  I don't know why not.  Maybe I haven't met the right one.....  I saw a version where someone added hot sauce to their coleslaw, and I started to wonder how my beloved Sweet Thai Chili Sauce would mix with mayo and make coleslaw.  Let's just say that I am hooked!!!

Sweet and Spicy Coleslaw

Makes 4 servings

1 bag coleslaw mix without the dressing
1/2 medium red onion, chopped
1/2 cup mayonnaise
1/4 cup sweet Thai chili sauce
1/4 teaspoon chili flakes (if you don't like it too spicy then cut back)
3 cloves garlic, minced
1/3 cup fresh cilantro, chopped
  1. Pour coleslaw into a bowl.
  2. Add onions and stir to combine.
  3. Mix the remaining ingredients in a small bowl until well combined.
  4. Add dressing to coleslaw and stir to coat.
  5. For best flavor, refrigerate overnight, but it can be served immediately.
Do you like traditional coleslaw?  How do you make yours?  I'd love to hear because I would like to try finding a coleslaw for me!
