    Well I typed this once and it disappeared before my very eyes. My husband and I liked this very much. It was a unique coleslaw that we've never had before. I liked the red pepper on it. Thank you very much for posting this!

    What a lovely version of coleslaw! We liked this a lot plus it was pretty! I didn't roast the the nuts in the oil b/c I forgot to! Made for SWT2018

    We just loved this slaw. So bright and fresh! I'll be making this one for years to come. Thank you for posting! Made for Susie's World Tour 2018

    This was really good, and it's so easy to make, too. The addition of the pineapple gave it a nice hint of sweetness, and the sesame/soy dressing was super good. We all loved it, and that doesn't happen all that often in my home. Thanks, Chef PotPie. Made for SWT 2018 (Hawaii).

    Wow I enjoyed this. As another reviewer said it makes a lot of dressing so next time I will use half for basting chicken or pork to go with this wonderful slaw! Loved the nut addition! Made for Susie's World Tour 2018.

I HATE to see people join the site, have no published recipes, but rag on another cook in a review on a recipe they haven't even tried or didn't follow. Oh, and I hate cilantro, too. :)
