As spring heats up we’re all feeling the urge to get out and fire up the grill. And what better to accompany whatever you may be throwing on said grill then coleslaw!
Ok, ok. I know coleslaw may seem anticlimactic for my first nice weather BBQ post of the year. But I kid you not, this recipe kicks some serious behind. I have found myself shovelling piles of this slaw onto my empty plate after I have finished all the grilled meat and sides, no exaggeration, going back for a third or even fourth helping. Somehow, a coleslaw binge doesn’t leave me feeling entirely guilty…
The key to this easy recipe are the noodles! Get yourself a pack of those inexpensive Japanese ramen noodles – crumble the noodles right into the salad before serving, and use the flavour pack in the dressing. Just genius!
Wishing you nice weather, stiff cocktails and tasty coleslaw to kick off BBQ season!
