This is a light, non-mayonnaise based, slaw that's a little different than the ordinary cole slaw. It's especially good when paired with bbq food or fish and chips.

Wonderful recipe! Served with grilled halibut. I used 1/4 of fresh jalepeno, finely minced, instead of red pepper flakes. This is my new favorite coleslaw. Thanks!

Used green and red cabbage, and shredded a carrot instead of cutting them into matchsticks. No cilantro for me, as it tastes like soap, but I did use a bit of flat-leaf parsley. Also added a 1/2 tsp. of sesame oil to the dressing mix. Very nice! And it'll go very well with my pulled pork sliders for dinner tonight. Thanks!
