Author Notes: I love a good coleslaw that has a tiny bit of heat. This one's great with fried foods, pulled pork, steak, sandwiches, burgers, etc. Adapted from Carrot, Parsnip and Granny Smith Apple Coleslaw from the cookbook Apples: A Cookbook by Robert Berkley. - mrslarkin —mrslarkin
Food52 Review: This slaw was a snap to prepare with a food processor. I followed the recipe to the letter, and the results were very good. Adding a few squirts of fresh lemon to the slaw really changes the character of the horseradish-based dressing. The lemon freshens the slaw and melds with the horseradish nicely. Gauge your crowd for horseradish lovers - my husband would have preferred less horseradish, but the taste suited me perfectly. This salad would be very good inside a Reuben or other smoked meat sandwich, or as a side to BBQ. Thanks mrslarkin for such a versatile and flavor-layered recipe! - Bevi —Bevi
