Juanita's American Coleslaw

During the last fifteen years, Juanita has adapted the original American coleslaw recipe (if that ever existed) to suit our own taste, and to suit the ingredients available fresh on the local market. The pointed head cabbage gives this healthy salad a bit more power than the white cabbage in the original salad recipe.

This spicy salad is pretty robust and can be prepared a couple of hours in advance. Its fresh and crispy taste combines absolutely great with any hot smoked meat from your barbecue smoker.
