I love topping a pulled pork sandwich with a nice helping of coleslaw. The other weekend I made a slow cooked pork shoulder (recipe pending) and this refreshing coleslaw. I am very pleased with the way this coleslaw turned out. It is very flavorful and easy to make, despite the long list of ingredients. Never let a long ingredient list deter you from any recipe; chances are it is well worth it!
