Tasted like good old fashioned coleslaw. I like it a little watery, so I added extra rice vinegar. I also used a red onion--to add a little more heat--and skipped the green pepper. It was great!

Tasty and colorful. I'm glad to see that others like coleslaw with onions and peppers. I used the preshredded cabbage and carrot mixture to save time. I didn't measure the mayonnaise, but I'm certain that I used a bit extra than listed. Great coleslaw; thanx!
