I loved, loved, loved this cole slaw. It is still definitely cole slaw, with just a little more kick to it.
1 bag of shredded slaw mix
2 carrots, shredded
1 red bell pepper, sliced very thin and cut in smaller pieces
2 green onions, sliced
2-3 ears grilled corn (kernels sliced off) or 1/2 cup frozen corn (defrosted) or canned
handful of chopped cilantro
1 cup chipotle or spicy ranch (I used Brianna’s Chipotle Cheddar dressing)
2 tablespoons mayo
a few splashes apple cider vinegar
fresh ground pepper
In large bowl combine ranch dressing, mayo, vinegar and black pepper.
Add vegetables (minus cilantro) and toss until fully dressed.
Refrigerate for 2 hours or until chilled. Toss in cilantro right before serving.
Did I change anything? I left out the carrots since there were carrots in the slaw mix I used. I also changed the original dressing. The creator of the recipe used Marie’s Chipotle Ranch, but I couldn’t find that.
What did the family think? I LOVED it! Hubby liked it, but wished I hadn’t put corn in it. The boys aren’t huge cole slaw fans…they have no idea what they’re missing.
Where did this recipe come from? Aggie’s Kitchen

That sounds fantastic! I love coleslaw. Unfortunately no one else in my family does. 🙁 Why is it that we women/moms love pasta salad, potato salad and cole slaw but no one else does?
Sounds really good and I would like to try it. What would you leave out to make it a little bit less spicy so Kids would like it?
