Roasted Poblano Slaw

I made a big batch of this crazy good roasted poblano slaw the other day when I made pulled pork sandwiches. The crunch and heat from the slaw went absolutely perfectly with the sweetness and tenderness of the pork.

Roasted Poblano Slaw

Poblanos are one of my favorite peppers. Though they have a little kick to them, they aren’t overpowering and I can usually use them in any dish I am taking to a pot-luck or family get-together without worrying about someone screaming that their mouth is on fire. I consider poblanos to be just more flavorful versions of a green bell pepper.

This slaw will keep for several days and still keep it’s nice crunch without being too watery.
