Lately I have begun to use 1/4 cup of olive oil instead of a 1/2 cup Key Lime Juice instead of regular lime juice and twice the hot sauce. Read More

Overall everyone gave this a three. I brought it to a cookout and we all agreed it needed a little something added to give it a little zip. Maybe some vinegar of some sort. But I'll try it again with some changes! Thanks! Read More

Maybe it's because I've recently had several other cole slaw recipes that were superb so in comparison--this one wasn't very good--but I wasn't particularly impressed. I could barely detect the hotsauce and the overall flavor was just weak. In fairness I must say that I tried the coleslaw immediatly. Tomorrow with time to mesh the flavors will likely be stronger. I will modify my comments if time significantly improves the recipe. Read More

This is now my favorite slaw recipe! I read the submitters update and I only used 1/4 cup of oil. I doubled the cilantro and hot sauce (personal preference) and left everything else the same. I have been using a similar one from this site for a couple of years but now that I have discovered this one with the addition of cumin hot pepper sauce and a LOT more cilantro I won't be going back to it. Thank you Doug for sharing your great recipe! Read More

Its great for anyone who likes veggies. I love slaw but my husband hates mayo coleslaw. I finally found a coleslaw that he will eat! I love the dressing best. Read More

This was o.k. but I think I'd stick with regular old coleslaw. I did add some white vinegar as someone suggested but it still seemed to be missing something. Read More
