A great-tasting healthy alternative

Everyone in my family loves this slaw, and it's wonderfully low-cal. I think the flavors are very fresh. I do not double the dressing. If you are sure to include the salt and sugar and let the flavors marry in the fridge for a few hours to a couple of days, the cabbage will naturally macerate and the slaw will get juicier.

Very flavorful and easy to make. I didn't expect it to come out so spicy, but everyone loved it. The dressing is very thin so you need to toss it really well to make sure it gets coated evenly.

A new twist to the same old coleslaw. My husband wasn't a fan but I thought it was good. Definitely double the dressing.
