    This is the first time in my 62 years of life that I’ve ever left a review for a recipe. This recipe is fantastic. I can’t say enough about it. I made a coleslaw dressing to go with it and actually serve it on Hawaiian buns. The only adjustment I will make next time to cut the red pepper flakes in half. I think 1 tablespoon will be a little much for those who don’t like spice Spice doesn’t bother me, but it has quite a bit of heat to it
