Confetti Coleslaw With Cilantro

This recipe is traditionally called "California Cole Slaw", but I made some changes by reworking the recipe. The pretty contrast of colors reminded me of confetti, hence the name. I found the original version "California Cole Slaw" recipe while going through my deceased mother-in-laws recipes. Thought I'd make a couple ingredient changes and wala. Here's the finished product. It is even kid friendly. Hope you enjoy it.

DYNAMITE!!! I can't believe that no one has rated this yet? It's the perfect combination of flavors. I separated the mixture and tried one with pecans and the other without. Seriously, I can't choose a favorite! Both are equally delicious! I went and made this for an office party and everyone was asking "who brought that Coleslaw" it was a HUGE hit. Even my kids liked it! Thanks for posting!!!
