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.

Very good. I made this for a recent BBQ and had at least one person say it was the best slaw they had ever had.
