Orange Cilantro Coleslaw

I love this salad. It is a refreshing spin on the classic coleslaw. I always like to serve dishes with a different twist than what people are use to. It has the same creamy and crunchy texture as the classic coleslaw.  The orange and golden raisins give it a vibrant and refreshing flavor. Also, the cilantro helps to bring all the flavors together perfectly.

This salad would be the perfect side to grilled chicken, BBQ hamburgers, or even as a topping on a pulled pork sandwich. Oh man, my mouth is watering just thinking about it. It’s a good thing that I have some leftovers in my fridge. I might just be having me some orange cilantro coleslaw for breakfast.

This salad is sure to please even the pickiest of eaters!
