Wonderful salad that's been a big hit at several potluck events this summer. One minor suggestion: if you back off on the oil (maybe a scant 1/4 cup instead of 1/3)and add a little lime juice, it's even more Indonesian-tasting!

Made exactly as directed, using jalapeno, except I made the dressing in the blender. Very popular, fresh and tasty. It made so much, I kept the dressing and veggies covered separately overnight and took to a family dinner the next day. It was just as good, if not better. Yum. Thankyou!

I think this was a nice salad, perfect balance and the curry really added a nice touch. I used both green and red cabbage and added shredded carrot.

This recipe was wonderful. i look forward to making it again. I did not have cilantro, but it was still delicious. I loved the spicy, sweet, flavor. I also substituted the peanuts with toasted slice almonds and I really enjoyed that. I look forward to trying it again with the peanuts and cilantro. Thank you!!

Curried slaw, yum! I doubled the sauce, other than oil.

I used napa cabbage for this recipe. It was so delicious! I am not a big cucumber fan, but added to this salad, it was delicious. Thank you for sharing!

This is awesome! Tonight I served with chicken, chips and garlic bread and the family voted that this go into our favourites cookbook. The peanuts are great and definitely don't leave out the coriander. For Aussie, I used 2 t sugar.

Asian goes over big time here - so no big surprise that we all loved this delicious Coleslaw with the great combination of ingredients that make up the dressing. Loved the addition of the peanuts which gives it an unexpected crunch. This will be seeing repeats for those family back yard cookouts during the summer months. Thank you for sharing - really enjoyed this one!

This was pretty good (we eat A LOT of coleslaw so are pretty picky LOL) . I would like to add a slug of soy and a splash of sesame oil to the dressing next time. I made the whole recipe but just chopped a handful of peanuts for the two of us to sprinkle on at the tabel. Hopefully leftovers minus added peanuts will be OK tomorrow. Just a note, I used 3/4 of a small thai chili (all I could get) and it was ferociously hot.

Absolutely delicious! I did omit the chile and used only a pinch of the curry powder (absolutely zero tolerance of anything hot and spicy) but I added a pinch of nutmeg and we really enjoyed this coleslaw. We particularly loved the freshness of the ingredients (the cabbage and cucumber were great together!), the absence of mayonaisse and the inclusion of nuts! Made for the October 2008 Aussie Recipe Swap. Thank you for sharing this super-star recipe, Sheynath.
