Spicy Coleslaw (Using Leftover Cowboy Candy Syrup)

Spicy Coleslaw

This coleslaw uses up leftover cowboy candy (candied jalapenos) syrup. Give your coleslaw a kick and serve meat BBQ’d with our Cowboy Candy BBQ sauce at your next gathering.

We also love to add kohlrabi to this recipe when they are in season. Just peel and cut into matchsticks and add to the veggie mix.
