Broccoli and Shishito Pepper Slaw

  • Save

I have never been this excited for coleslaw before. So as a kid I hated coleslaw. It was over wet. about 2 cups of cabbage to 1tb carrots. Crazy sugary and just plain one note. Coleslaw as a adult I love because I realized really late that it was my experiences with slaw and not all slaw in general. AND its more than just cabbage. Now this slaw I have in cabbage a feature roll its absolutely not the star, the star here is broccoli and shishito peppers. Now shishitos are fun peppers they have different heat ranges one in ten are spicy! This slaw has it all major crunch, creaminess, acid, a little sweetness and a touch of heat. Try it out and let me know what you think!
