Jalapeno-Cilantro Slaw

I have to thank The Pioneer Woman for this one.  We made some adjustments to her recipe and this slaw was the perfect pairing for our pulled pork sandwiches at our Super Bowl party.  Plus, I just love all the pretty colors - it's definitely a great dish for the big game!  It's best to make the slaw a few hours before serving to allow the flavors to get happy.

Jalapeno Cilantro Slaw

1/2 head green cabbage, sliced thin
1/2 head purple cabbage, sliced thin
1 jalapeno, roasted and minced (we roast ours on the grill for easy clean up)
1/2 cup whole milk
1/2 cup mayonnaise
1 teaspoon white vinegar
1 tablespoon sugar
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
2 cups cilantro, coarsely chopped

Combine cabbage and cilantro in a large bowl.  In a small bowl, mix milk, mayonnaise, vinegar, sugar, salt, cayenne pepper, and jalapeno.  Pour over cabbage and cilantro.  Toss to combine.  Cover and refrigerate until ready to serve.
