My Loco Orange Coleslaw

Tammy Brownlow


This is a sweet and tangy coleslaw that is wonderfully different. It will brighten up your favorite bbq dishes and add a great twist to street tacos. Perfect for serving at picnics, potlucks, and reunions.

I hope you give this one a try - I know the jello sounds a little out there, but it is really good.
