The grated jalapeño and hint of honey give this slaw a delicious balance of sweet and heat, which makes this classic side dish more exciting and dynamic.
Technique tip: Remove seeds from jalapeño to reduce heat. Adding the dressing right before serving keeps the slaw nice and crunchy.
Swap option: Swap serrano pepper for jalapeño for more heat.
In a container, mix together the mayo, vinegar, garlic, sugar, onion, salt, jalapeño, pepper, celery seed and honey. Cover and store in refrigerator.
When ready to serve, fold in dressing into coleslaw mix — just enough to wet the cabbage.
