I watched Paula Deen make this on her show and it looked so beautiful and refreshing - and I was right! I made it last night for a side dish and it was so tasty - even better the next day after it sat in the fridge overnight. The only change I made was to omit the sweet relish since I don't care for relish. It was sweet enough without it I thought. The flavors and colors are perfectly balanced - will definitely make regularly!
This is fabulous! I used a package coleslaw mix, adding the celery, green onions -- no green pepper--plus added the dried cranberries with the almonds on the side (one guest is allergic to nuts). I mixed the dressing early in the day and refridgerated to blend flavors (I would suggest doubling the dressing--so good). Will make this again for pulled pork sammies. (drooling) :)
