Cole Slaw Dressing

This is  our favorite coleslaw recipe, and so much better than most pre-made dressings available in stores. It has a nice blend of spicy jalapeno peppers, sweet sugar, and acid from the vinegar and lemon.

It is a perfect side dish with smoked meats in particular, and goes on top of pulled pork to form a perfect pulled pork sandwich. (Something we never understood until eating pulled pork sandwiches this way in Kentucky!)
