      This past summer I invited Caryn and her husband Steven to a barbecue dinner in our garden. Caryn (of course) asked what she should bring. I (of course) said nothing. Caryn (of course) did bring something, she brought this salad. I took one spoonful, and after that I just basically parked the bowl in front of me and had 1 grilled chicken breast and 2 gallons of this salad for supper. Dessert? No thank you, I'll just have more salad. Since then I've had it several times in Caryn's house, and I adore it. I'm so pleased she posted this recipe here at Zaar, now I can have this salad anytime I like (I was running out of excuses why I kept inviting her family over for dinner on a constant basis. Caryn thinks it's because we're good friends, it's really because of this salad). I had half a purple cabbage in the fridge, and half a green cabbage, so I combined the two. And I double the pecans, they are my favorite part. I made this on a Friday afternoon for Saturday lunch, and Caryn very wisely suggested that I keep the salad, dressing and pecans separate and mix them just before serving. This is good advice and you should all take it! Caryn, I love you dearly, but not as much now that I can make this myself! ;-)

      This was wonderful. I used pre-packaged cole slaw mix, as I was pressed for time, and regular pecans - I have no clue as to where to get Chinese ones. This was so tasty and easy to prepare and the whole family gobbled it up. I also made your cauliflower kugel as a side dish, and roasted a sticky chicken -that was dinner, and I've never made a better one!

      This was really tasty! I was also unable to get the Chinese sweet pecans, so I made my own homemade sugared nuts, using a recipe on Recipezaar. This was quick and not only tasted great, but looked beautiful as well. Thanks - this is a real winner!
