Lower Sodium Low Sugar Oriental Coleslaw

"Started out in the church cookbook and has been modified to allow for low sodium and low sugar diets. Making it in a ziploc bag makes transporting it to potluck or picnic quite easy. If people eating it have issues with nuts (diverticulits and the like) the nuts can successfully be left out or mixed and served on the side."

  1. I thought the use of both sunflower seeds & almonds was a nice touch. I appreciated that this was a lower sodium option of one of my favorite slaws. Made for Spring '09 Pick A Chef and served with Recipe #352068.


Gee how to do this.. After almost 15 years working for a major telecommunications firm they have opted to close and I've moved on to support services for a member of the Million Dollar Round Table. I specialize in the Health and Employee Benefits division but I try to support all parts. For fun I spend time with my loving husband and miracle son. (Anyone who knows about PCOS can relate--I almost didn't get to have a child) Cooking, Reading, Cross Stitching, Quilting are among my favorite things to do. Dishes on the other hand are not (maybe next year i get the kitchen remodeled) . If I had a month off with no intrusions from the outside world i'd finish the quilt project and the cross stitch project from BC (before child). <img src="http://i250.photobucket.com/albums/gg271/MrsTeny/Permanent%20Collection/PACSpring09Iwasadopted.jpg">
