Top Review by Myrna in London

I have chopped more cabbages than I care to think on in the search for the definitive coleslaw. My tastebuds are fairly amiable, but not so those of my son. His primary (annual summer) complaint is that I simply can’t make decent coleslaw. This assertion is based not necessarily on the facts, but rather what in actuality he is saying is that I hadn’t yet made a cabbage salad that tastes remotely like what his beloved grandmother used to make. Apparently now I can!! I could see from the first mouthful that I finally had lucked into a recipe that he liked. In this case it is almost secondary that I loved it too. Thank you Karen!
