I made this the day I saw Paula make this on Food Network. We really enjoyed it. This is a bit different than traditional cole slaw but I liked the change.

For cooked cabbage this was quite good really. I did add some flavor with 4 beef stock cubes and a splash of vinegar and sugar. And I used all 4 tbs chili powder and it was right on.
