Sweet and Sour Coleslaw

This sweet and sour coleslaw reminds us of summertime Southwest favorites, with fresh additions of cilantro and lime to cut the sweetness of the brown sugar in the dressing. It also takes advantage of the oversized, plump jalapeño chilies you’ll find these days that are on the milder side, even when you throw them into a dish with their seeds intact.

Preparation

To make the dressing, combine all ingredients in a tightly lidded container. Cover and shake to combine.
