We enjoyed this much more than a mayo coleslaw. I had a couple of people at the dinner table who don't normally eat coleslaw and they liked it! Definitely plan to make it again.

Besides scaling the recipe down (only needed enough for 2 people) I followed this recipe exactly. I love regular coleslaw with mayo, but Hubby does not, so this was a good compromise for us. It does taste better the longer you let it sit. This was very tasty & incredibly easy, and I would definately make this again, so thank you for posting it.
