I make this every year for the holidays. It's a healthy alternative to traditional coleslaw made with mayo. For a alternate flavor combination, substitute toasted sesame seeds and sesame seed oil for the walnuts and walnut oil, and rice wine vinegar for the white wine vinegar. —Bob Nopper, Salem, New York

"Also tastes great made with commercial broccoli/carrot slaw and,

if you are in a hurry, poppyseed dressing is a good substitute."
