Asian Coleslaw Recipe

Here's a recipe for coleslaw without all the greasy mayonnaise. It's well-liked by the people who've tried it. A bit of sugar mellows the tangy dressing. -Alta Goodman of Canton, South Dakota

"A different type of side to go with my asian inspired main course. Napa cabbage is a bit expensive in my area so I may not do this one often."

"Great recipe! I added crushed ramen noodle which added a fabulous crunch. I didn't have white wine vinegar and substituted red wine vinegar...was still great! Very quick and easy. Perfect side for a meal during the hot summer when you don't want to heat up the house."

"This was fabulous, so easy and colourful. I used regulars cabbage, shredded very finely. I served it with Asian chicken thighs and brown rice. Janet.

I made it again and added 1 pkg of ramen noodles fried in butter with sesame seeds. I used Napa this time. Janet. FE"
