    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


    Used different ingredients. Brought this to a party and it went over REALLY well. I added 2 tablespoons of a chilli garlic sauce (from the Chinese food area of the grocery store) and instead of salt/pepper - added some Mrs. Dash - about a heaping teaspoon. This is a keeper recipe - and VERY easy as well.  -  29 Sep 2008
