Honey Sriracha Coleslaw. Impress your guests with this easy barbecue side salad. Creamy, sweet and spicy honey Sriracha dressing over healthy coleslaw salad.
With summer holidays like Memorial Day and 4th of July coming up, you’ll want some fun and creative recipes to wow your guests, or hosts. Let’s look beyond the all-too-easy store bought 7-layer dip and try something unique; like this sweet and slightly spicy Honey Sriracha Coleslaw recipe. You’ll impress them with this spin on a traditional barbecue coleslaw salad.
Some friends of ours visited Las Vegas and were gracious enough to let us have a barbecue get-together at their home in their absence. Of course, they’re adorable dog Maggie needed to be babysat so it was a win-win. As the food bloggers of the group, it’s our job to bring unique dishes and baked goods to these potlucks; apparently we’re all foodies.
There’s something about grilled pork chops, burgers, lobster and corn that makes you want a good old-fashioned coleslaw. I think these foods are best buddies, and go together well. By this way, this coleslaw recipe has passed the unofficial taste recommendation test: two friends who said they don’t ever eat coleslaw came back for seconds.
Making this Honey Sriracha Coleslaw is a simple as can be. It literally takes less than 10 minutes from the start of popping open that bag of coleslaw veggies to the smiling satisfaction of tasting it. First mix together the short, but important list of ingredients for the sauce, pour over salad mix, stir and….well that’s it! Can’t get much easier than that. Have a fun and safe summer while enjoying your Memorial Day and 4th of July barbecues!
