Spicy Slaw

There’s nothing like the sound of the neighbour’s lawnmower to get you in the mood for a Bar-B-Q.  If they’re cutting the grass then it’s dry enough to get out in the garden with a couple of cold beers and something sizzling on the BBQ.  A couple of side dishes are called for to go with your steak.  Guacamole, perhaps a mozzarella and tomato salad and how about some of this Spicy Slaw?

It’s a recipe from Simon Rimmer taken from the ‘Something for the Weekend’ section of June’s BBC GoodFood magazine.  It is spicy and sweet and so good that I made some extra dressing for drizzling over cold chicken in sandwiches etc.
