I cut my carrots into matchsticks this time, but I think I prefer them shredded. I cheated and used a bag of coleslaw mix. I was having trouble finding Asian cabbage, and I wanted the mix of colors I chose Granny Smith apples because I knew that my barbecue sauce would be sweet. If using a tangy or spicy barbecue sauce, you might prefer to use sweeter apples, like Fiji or Gala.
