Colorful and delicious. Moosewood recipe

Top Review by Yellow Billed Magpie

This is from Moosewood Daily Special, one of my favorite cookbooks.

Yes, the slaw is excellent. The best non-mayo slaw I've found. Its perfect for summer picnics, won't spoil, lasts in the fridge a long time, colorful, tart, crunchy.

I use yellow mustard for a real American flavor.

This is a standard in my house.
