1/2 medium head
green cabbage, shredded
1/2 medium head
red cabbage, shredded
red bell pepper, thinly sliced
yellow bell pepper, thinly sliced
red onion, thinly sliced
chopped fresh cilantro
light olive oil
hot pepper sauce, or to taste
salt and pepper to taste
Lately I have begun to use 1/4 cup of olive oil instead of a 1/2 cup, Key Lime Juice instead of regular lime juice and twice the hot sauce.
Overall, everyone gave this a three. I brought it to a cookout and we all agreed it needed a little something added to give it a little zip. Maybe some vinegar of some sort. But I'll try it again with some changes! Thanks!
Great salad. Very tasty and pretty to look at.
Maybe it's because I've recently had several other cole slaw recipes that were superb, so in comparison--this one wasn't very good--but I wasn't particularly impressed. I could barely detect the hotsauce and the overall flavor was just weak. In fairness, I must say that I tried the coleslaw immediatly. Tomorrow, with time to mesh, the flavors will likely be stronger. I will modify my comments if time significantly improves the recipe.
This is now my favorite slaw recipe! I read the submitters update and I only used 1/4 cup of oil. I doubled the cilantro and hot sauce (personal preference) and left everything else the same. I have been using a similar one from this site for a couple of years but now that I have discovered this one with the addition of cumin, hot pepper sauce, and a LOT more cilantro, I won't be going back to it. Thank you Doug for sharing your great recipe!
Good side dish. My family loved it even the kids. thx.
This is great. Colorfull, full of flavor, great taste, a MAN's coleslaw.
Its great for anyone who likes veggies. I love slaw but my husband hates mayo coleslaw. I finally found a coleslaw that he will eat! I love the dressing best.

This irresistible coleslaw is more tart and tangy than creamy.
Sweet, juicy peaches make this spicy slaw the perfect summer side.
