Cranberry Jalapeno Cole Slaw

Garrison Wayne


This Cole Slaw is definitely not sweet and goes extremely well with grilled meats. The jalapeno lends a subtle zip. It is seeded, so it takes the zip down a notch. I served this with a Grilled Tri Tip Steak for my Memorial Day BBQ. We all agreed that this would be perfect atop Grilled Fish Tacos. I am definitely going to try that next time.
