I've first had learned of this dish from Weight Watchers around 1973 (called something else) and made it over and over again. We substituted Sweet & Low for the sugar, but everything else is the same. As you can see, it's really low in calories and I served rice with it to the rest of the family not on a diet. Cabbage is one of those very healthy veggies we just don't get enough of and this recipe offers a tasty, quick and easy way to do that. I agree, this has to be rated 5-stars! Thank you for posting it :)

Very simple and tasty slaw. I made this for my dear wife who is watching the carbs and she liked it very much.

I used chopped Canadian bacon instead of chicken. The flavor is outstanding. By substituting artificial sweetener for the sugar, it's also a great low carb side for a South Beach or Atkins type diet. This will be a staple around here.
