  1. Half-fast-cook
    Great side dish which I really made into more of a slaw by chopping the ingredients smaller. I didn't have raisins or lemon juice so substituted a little white wine. It had a crisp light taste which balanced very well with the stronger flavors of the Parmesan Garlic Chicken Breasts #234175 and Ranch Potatoes #251727. I think I'm reserving the 5ht star for the missing mayo, but this salad is good (and healthier).
