Pinned It, Made It! Monday

I love to make all different  flavors of slaw, I usually prefer vinegar based instead of mayo. Years ago I had a recipe for Firecracker Slaw and if I dig through my recipes I might be able to find it, but who has time for that?  I was looking for a fast recipe to make for Mother's Day using what I had at home. I did not use jalapenos in the slaw, because I wanted my in-laws to eat it, but next time I make it I'm adding the jalapenos and hot sauce. This had a nice kick just from the juice, my mother in-law said it would be good with hamburgers.    

Firecracker Coleslaw-my version
I used: 1 bag of slaw mix, 1/2 cup broccoli cut  small, half of a red pepper,  handful of cilantro leaves chopped( I forgot to put onions in but will either add green onions or onion next time)
for the dressing: 1/2 cup apple cider vinegar, 2 T olive oil, 2 T jalapeno juice from a jar of jalapenos  1 t. celery seed, 1 clove garlic minced, coarse black pepper(to taste), 1-2 T organic sugar

This is the recipe I found and started my dressing with, I left out the mustard, hot sauce and salt. Here is one recipe  that is pinnable and pretty close to the first.  Other slaw recipes I make I add sunflower seeds and almonds. I use to make the ramen noodles slaw but now make it without adding the noodles.  I first stopped using the seasoning packets since they are full of stuff I didn't want to put in my body and would still use the noodles but found I like it  without the noodles best. I'll post my recipe for that one soon.

Oh that sounds so good, Allison. I love spicy kicks! I Alabama, the relatives make a "hot slaw" that I am all over when I'm there!
