This was part of a recipe for tilapia tacos. I've tweaked it a bit and now make it as a side dish, not just as part of the taco. The last time I made it, I doubled everything and added small, thin strips of red bell pepper and about a handful of snow pea-pods, cut into thirds.

We really liked the Asian flair of this coleslaw. It was a nice change from your everyday traditional coleslaw. I took a few liberties with this recipe and made it more of a Chinese chicken coleslaw. I used green onion and went heavy on the cilantro. I also added a couple of handfuls of peanuts, crispy chow mein noodles, and chopped, cooked chicken. To the dressing, I added about 1/2 tsp. soy sauce and 1 tsp. honey. This made a wonderful, quick lunch salad. Thank you for sharing! ** Made for 2013 Divisional Football Playoffs**
