"Tomatoes and oregano make it Italian; wine and tarragon make it French. Sour cream makes it Russian; lemon and cinnamon make it Greek. Soy sauce makes it Chinese; garlic makes it good."-Alice May Brock of Alices' Restaurant fame. Albiet no garlic in this recipe, but this is a refreshing alternative to mayonnaise-based coleslaw in a taco or on the side. To Make Ahead: Cover and refrigerate for up to 1 day. Toss again to refresh just before serving. (Eating Well, June/July 2003)

Just because cilantro is added, doesn't make it a Mexican slaw!
