Make Ahead

Not Your Grandma's Cole Slaw

Author Notes

This cole slaw features Indian spice and a little kick of heat. I whisk the "dressing" in the bottom of a big bowl and then just add the veggies on top and stir it up. Every time I make it I like it just as much. Hope you do, too! —Deborah Brown
