    Just made a batch. We always have prepared hot dogs with slaw. Born in WVa when we moved to North Carolina @ age 6 you could not find that on hot dogs anywhere! Also in Florida and now in SC we have introduced slaw dogs to many people and all loved it and never heard about it. There was a place in Orlando called Hot Dog Heaven that had various regions takes on the hot dog. One basket offered was the West Virginia Slaw Dog, which is where I am sure it originated.
    This tangy slaw would as mentioned go great with pulled pork sandwhiches, also on would go great on Sloppy Joes!
