"This is my adaptation of some other coleslaws I've tried with horseradish. For those that like a bold tangy coleslaw like me. I like to chop everything confetti style. It does turn lavender from the purple cabbage after sitting so if that will bother you just use all green. Might be good for a party of purple foods. LOL. Some nice additions would be: red bell pepper, shredded carrots, green onions and radishes. Have fun!"

I made this for a pot-luck dinner I was hosting and it was enjoyed by all. I used green onions instead of white onions and I used plain yogurt in lieu of the sour cream. Made for the BillboardRecipe Tag Game.

I made this up ahead of time last night so I could have it for lunch today with fish sandwiches I plan to make. I just tasted it, and it is delish! I cut the recipe in half, and used half the horseradish called for, as it has a tendency to bother my tummy, but I will suffer through it for this yummy slaw! I am glad I gave it time for the flavors to marry, as now tastes even better than last night. Thanks so much for sharing your recipe with us T! Wish my camera was working so I could take a photo. So pretty all mixed together. Linda
