We loved this... I used pre-cut cabbage as a time saver, but otherwise followed as directed. It was so refreshing, and cut through the richness of the rest of our meal. Also love that it isn't mayo based!

We enjoyed this coleslaw with Asian Chicken -- delicious and very different from other coleslaw recipes. Made as directed, except my vegetables were probably different amounts than indicated, especially the daikon radish which was quite small. Thanks for sharing!
