Sriracha Broccoli Coleslaw


Coleslaw can be a rather sad dish at times. It’s the ubiquitous side kick at cookouts and BBQs, becoming increasingly soggy and wilted as it gets passed over in favour of the burgers and hot dogs. But done right, coleslaw can be be a crisp and refreshing side dish that can hold its own. Not drowning it in mayo is the first step in making a decent slaw. And the addition of some Sriracha or other spicy sauce can take it to a whole new level.
