Spicy Southwestern Style Slaw

This is a spicy (make it to your heat level), colorful coleslaw that is oil/vinegar based.  I know there are those who prefer this type to mayonnaise based slaws.
Aren't the colors just beautiful?  I used all purple cabbage, but of course, you can use a mixture of purple/green cabbage or all green.
For the dressing:
1/3 cup canola oil
1/2 cup red wine vinegar
1/2 t. ground cumin
1/2 t. granulated garlic
1/2 t. sugar
1/4 t. kosher salt
Few grinds of black pepper
Whisk ingredients together in a small bowl.  Taste and add more vinegar or oil to suit your taste.
For the slaw:
3 cups shredded cabbage
1 cup shredded or matchstick cut carrots
3 green onions, white and some green, thinly sliced
1 jalapeno, stemmed, seeded and finely chopped
1 Serrano, stemmed, seeded and finely chopped
1/4 cup chopped cilantro
In a large bowl, using tongs, mix the above listed ingredients.  Slowly pour dressing over slaw, tossing to coat.  You may not use all the dressing.
Refrigerate at least 1 hour before serving.
