"I like to make this when we need a change from the classic cream coleslaw. We change up the veggies from time to time depending on what we have on hand. Napa cabbage is the key."

"I am usually not a big fan of coleslaw, but this one is not as sweet as so many of them are. Just the right amount of heat, absolutely delicious, no guilt savory slaw! Got raves from my asian food loving Daughter! Will keep this recipe handy."
