Hank's Cajun coleslaw

Molly Stingley


Family was having a pot luck and Hank wanted to come up with something special as a side dish. This was his final outcome and it is wonderful. Very fresh and bright taste! This is not a sweet Cole slaw its' wonderful on hot dogs and fish tacos. I like mine with a little sweet so I add a heaping Tbsp sugar to mine.
