Sherry Berry's Baja Slaw
Why I Love This Recipe
I got the idea from a local favorite restaurant. I fell in LOVE with it when I first tasted it, and even asked it the restaurant sold it by itself, as it was just a garnish for an appetizer they sold at the time. They no longer serve the baja slaw, so I was very sad to see it go, however I feel this is the perfect opportunity to perfect my own. Let's just say this is a slight variation or twist on 'their' recipe ;) I think this slaw is very versitile-by itself, as a side dish, as a salad, or used as a garnish if you'd like.
