To come up with this dish, I used a number of different recipes, plus some ideas of my own. It's great for a potluck because it's made the night before and the flavor keeps getting better. Whenever I serve it, I'm inundated with recipe requests. —Ruth Lovett, Bay City, Texas
A hint of mustard in the vinaigrette-style dressing sparks the flavor in this change-of-pace coleslaw. Fruit and cauliflower are unexpected surprises in the cabbage mixture, but the flavors blend beautifully.
The first time I made this main dish, my son's friends cleaned out the salad bowl—I didn't get even a taste! The next time I made it, I knew why it had disappeared so fast: The crunchy cabbage, tender tidbits of ham, subtle sweetness of honey and zesty hint of mustard make a perfect combination of tastes and textures. (Be sure to serve yourself first!)
This flavor-packed twist on traditional creamy coleslaw makes a perfect complement to the Thai shrimp. The light, tangy vinaigrette enhances the fresh flavors of the veggies.—Erin Chilcoat, Smithtown, New York
This has been a very popular salad from my recipe box for a long, long time! Before I retired, when my office had a covered-dish-get-together, I was always asked to bring my tangy coleslaw. My family loves it, too.

I first made this unusual salad for my husband's lunch. It takes just 5-10 minutes to put together from start to finish. The crunchy blend of ingredients has a nice zip! --Betty Kleberger of Florissant, Missouri
