Is there anything better than a summer slaw?

This coleslaw with a twist recipe is easy to whip up and the perfect BBQ side. With just a pinch of heat it's also the perfect complement to pulled pork sandwiches. Whatever the case, this Mexican slaw is a crowd pleaser.

Note: we use Primal Kitchen Mayo Products in an effort to avoid nasty fillers, trans fats, and soy. You can sub regular mayo and simply add 1 tsp. chipotle seasoning.
