Sriracha Coleslaw recipe by Barefeet In The Kitchen


I stumbled onto this recipe a while back on Jenn‘s site and I knew immediately that my husband would love this kicked up version of coleslaw. He and my oldest son are crazy about Sriracha sauce.

I served this with some simple grilled chicken and potato fries for an easy Saturday night dinner. I really wanted to make this good and spicy for them and as a result, I added way more Sriracha than I can tolerate. I didn’t even attempt serving this to my two youngest boys.

The flavors in this salad work great together, but I’m cautioning you to add the Sriracha slowly and taste as you go.

I’ve never been a huge fan of coleslaw, but I really liked the depth that the Sriracha added to this dish. (Before I went crazy and doubled the amounts, that is. Oh well, the spice lovers in the house definitely weren’t complaining!)

    Yeah, I have that one saved to try too! And sriracha is definitely best added in small increments, lol. At least your sinuses would be cleared out, ha ha.
