"I made this coleslaw for a recipe club. Everyone raved about it. The Vegitarian in our group was so excited she couldn't wait to make it for her family. Taste great when used to make fish tacos."

"Very yummy and different. I tripled the recipe and only used 2 seeded jalapenos and it was pretty spicy. I love spice, but next time I'll add less or omit it so my son can eat it too. Also didn't use cilantro. Will make again. Thanks for the great recipe."
