A wonderfully flavored cole slaw that goes well with pork, seafood, chicken and beef entrees. Light and creamy with just the right combination of flavors to bind. Note - refrigeration time is not included.

I was torn between giving four stars or five ... it really is a lovely little recipe, and I appreciated the fact it's different from all the common coleslaws. But in the end I'm giving it four stars because it just didn't seem very flavorful to me -- the flavors are so light and mild that it borders on being bland. I'll definitely make it again, but will tinker with it to give it just a bit more punch -- a bit more Dijon, a bit more ginger ... something. (It could just be that my ginger was a bit old and had lost some flavor!) I may also try just a bit of crystallized ginger ... who knows! But I will make it again -- thanks for posting it!
