Burger with honey mustard slawSummertime is burger time, right?!? This spicy burger with honey mustard slaw is the perfect addition to your summer burger menu. Recently, I’ve learned to expand my burger taste buds and try out some unique flavor combinations. I used to stick with the boring combination of just cheese, maybe some pickles and then mustard. But then I branched outĀ andĀ realized what I was missing!

Burger with honey mustard slawAs I’ve said a million times, I love a good sweet and spicy combination. I decided to add some heat into the burger, and then add in some sweet with this homemade honey mustard slaw. The kids passed up the slaw but hey, they don’t know what they’re missing out on. You can make your own homemade slaw by thinly slicing up red and green cabbage, or you can go the easy route and just buy a bag of already made cabbage slaw. Then add in your dressing and seasonings and you’ve got a homemade honey mustard slow without the high fructose corn syrup!
