An Asian Twist to Cole Slaw!

Top Review by Geema

Crunchy, tasty salad. This recipe has floated around for a while, but I love the addition of the nuts and seeds in this variation. I added some minced cilantro to the mix, and I cut down on the oil, using only 1/2 cup and it was more than enough. I'll cut down even more when I make it again...and I certainly will!
