Firefly Kimchi Slaw

Kimchi is not always the first Firefly flavor folks grab to incorporate into their salads, but after enjoying this recipe, we know you’ll begin reaching for it more! The vinaigrette makes this salad a bit lighter than a more traditional coleslaw (We also have a mayo-based version of Kimchi Coleslaw in our cookbook, Fresh & Fermented) . The tang, and hint of heat from the kimchi and hot sauce makes this recipe a winner at your backyard BBQ or picnic.
