I adapted this recipe while on the South Beach Diet. It is a wonderful complement to grilled meat and burgers and a welcome change from the Asian flavored or the mayo-based slaws. The recipe is easily doubled.

This recipe had the basis of what I was yearning for in coleslaw. I made one adjustment by adding 1T. of grapeseed oil to the dressing. Yummy as a side dish with grilled chicken. Read More

I like the tartness that the lime juice brings to this coleslaw found the cumin a little overwhelming so I will cut that back a bit in the future. That little kick from the cayenne is just perfect for the dressing and I love the way this breaks down nutritionally. Read More

I wanted to make the asian coleslaw with ramen noodles but after cutting up my cabbage and green onions I realized I was out of ramen noodles! So I decided to make this recipe instead. I didn't have a sugar substitute so I just used sugar! Read More
