    Chocolatl's Note:

    German sailors in the 1800s were atracted by Samoa's beauty and climate. Many emigrated there, bringing their recipes with them. Adapted from Sam Choy's Polynesian Kitchen. For a crisper slaw, cut cabbage in half and soak in salted ice water for about 1 hour. Drain, chill, and then shred. Prep time does not include chilling time.

      I love vinegar so this was perfect for me. I didn't have any watercress so I put in about a 1/2 cup of chopped cilantro. I think more green olives would be nice too. All in all, a great slaw! Thanks for sharing. Made for ZWT7-Pacific Islands.

      OhMyGoodness, this was very "puckery." So different from my normal KFC-like slaw! The green olives added a briny flavor, and we didn't think it was sweet enough, so I added more sugar and a little more oil. I used red wine vinegar. It wasn't bad, just different from what we're used to! ZWT7 - Shady Ladies

      Vinegar lovers pucker up! This slaw packs quite the tangy punch. A simple side to put together, I liked the dressing a lot the only change I made to it was to add about 1/2 the amount of celery seed. For the salad I had to leave out the pimento because I couldn't find any, and subbed arugula for watercress. Made 1/2 the recipe and it was the perfect amount as a side for 3 of us. Made during ZWT7.
