    This recipe was simple to make and had a good flavor to it. I don’t like cole slaw that is drenched in mayonaise (as much of them are) so this one worked well for me. I added cilanto since I am a fan of it and use it a lot on the various dishes I make. My husband can be a picky eater but he really liked this coleslaw. I will be putting this cole slaw in my recipe book. Not all recipes make it there but this one did.

    Thanks for sharing
