Good but I had to make alot of adjustments. I used half cup mayo and half cup plain yogurt. I used a whole head of cabbage and added 2 tbsp of apple cider vinegar.

We are'nt big fans of slaws; but we LOVE this recipe!

This was very good. Everyone enjoyed the taste, and liked it much better than the typical coleslaw. I also thought it was pretty, which was a plus. Very easy to make.
