"An idealist is one who, on noticing that roses smell better than a cabbage, concludes that it will also make better soup." -H. L. Mencken

The refrigerator light goes on...

Sriracha sauce makes the perfect ingredient for a spicy slaw. You need a bit of sweetness from the honey and the creaminess of the sour cream to balance the flavors with the bitter greens.

Check the label of your Sriracha to make sure of the sodium content. This varies widely.The USDA reports only about 50 milligrams per teaspoon, but one of the most popular, Huy Fong Foods Chili Garlic Sauce, contains 95 milligrams per teaspoon, so you might have to adjust your added salt a bit to keep the flavors balanced.
