Steak and Shrimp Tacos w/ Spicy Bruschetta Slaw


A quick fun and tasteful dish. This dish is an original but not without the help of ingredients from two other similar recipes plus my own. Those recipes can be found in Food and Wine's May 2009 issue titled Grilled steak tacos w/ avocado salsa, and Fine Cooking's Issue 127 by Laraine Perri titled Tequila-Chipotle shrimp tostados w/ lime and sour cream.
