I want to start off by saying that we have always loved Chef John's recipes, rating them all 5 stars, but we did not like this one at all. We had 5 adults that ate it and only one said that it was O.K. It was WAY to acidic for us so we added extra sugar which made it better but still not good. I will not be making this again but will continue to try other Chef John recipes as they are normally amazing.


I like where this recipe was taking me but not where it ended up. I used Sriracha and was a little worried that a whole tablespoon would be too much spice, so I started with a teaspoon. Not enough. Two. Too much for us. Not overpowering, but wanted it a little gentler. It was good, but different like that. I did end up adding more sugar to make up for the extra spice. I like the premise of this recipe and I will make a version of it again. I liked the extra sweetness that I got when I added the extra sugar and did like some of the bite of the Sriracha, but I should stick with 1 teaspoon next time.


This recipe sounded really good to me. I have a mango coleslaw recipe we love, but this one really lacked the wow factor. I ended up adding a bit more siracha and vinegar, but something was still missing
