Very nice....Tangy and filling. I used sui choy instead of savoy and added shredded carrot and sliced green onion. Cumin flavour is nice in this. Makes a lot

Great slaw-but then I LOVE cilantro! I used bagged coleslaw and added some diced red onion to give it a little zip. Also added about 3/4 c. fat-free mayonnaise to mellow the tang of the lime juice and because we like a little creamier coleslaw. Served it with a Mexican casserole and will make it again whenever I make fajitas. Thanks for a real keeper,Bergy!

People seem to love or hate cilantro. I'm on the love 'em side. I usually do not care for slaws of any kind but this attracted me due to the lime and cilantro. It beats any other slaw I've had. Easy to do and just gets better with time. The cumin is great in it as well. Thanks again Bergy
