11.28.17 This was a really tasty side dish to some curried chicken and rice. As directed, I let the pickled onions marinate for 4 hours and then the coleslaw itself for another 3 hours. Step #2 tells you to mix in half of the pickled onions, but it doesn’t tell you what to do with the other half??? The onions were sooooo good that I just added all of them to the coleslaw. The cumin brings a new flavor to coleslaw and is tempered nicely with the sweetness from the sugar. Totally different coleslaw that was totally enjoyed! Read More
