I'm posting this recipe in response to a request. This do-ahead, sweet slaw is delicious with chicken, barbecue, or fish! (Prep and cook time do not include 6 hours or overnight chilling time).

This slaw has a lot of sweet, lemony flavor. The only change I made was to use a little less (1/2 a cup) of oil. I also used red wine vinegar though perhaps white is what the author is calling for (either way, red worked out fine). I found there was more liquid than I preferred, so I drained the slaw after mixing everything together. Next time, when I'm making it just for myself, I'll probably use sugar-free Jello mix and double the cabbage to increase the number of servings and make it a bit healthier. Thanks for sharing!
