Awesome easy recipe... - 26 Aug 2011


Used different ingredients. I made this recipe exactly as written except that I substituted an equal amount of grated green and red cabbage and grated carrot for the coleslaw mix to save money. The coleslaw was okay, not my favourite and I likely won't make it again but it was good enough to round out dinner. - 29 Sep 2008
