I thought this was really delicious. Wasn't a big wet mess in the bottom. I did use a package of shredded cole slaw mix though, didn't like what the cabbages looked like this week. So it had shredded carrots in it. It was only about 4 cups of cabbage so I halved the dressing. It turned out just wonderful but just needed some pepper I found when I served it. Tastes just like a great restaurant cole slaw. Will keep this recipe to make again. Forgot to mention I let it chill overnight. *******Made again for a picnic this Memorial Day weekend for 10 and everyone just loved this. They said it was delicious and took dibs on taking leftovers home if there were any.

I started with this basic recipe, then made a few changes. My goal was to use some vegetables from my garden. I used 1/2 cup mayonnaise and 1/2 plain yogurt. I added 2 tablespoons honey and added carrots, celery, radish, rasiens and pecons, and since I like things with a little zip, added a teaspoon chili powder. It came out great. Thanks for giving me the starting place.
