I was introduced to basil when I married into an Italian family. I loved the aromatic fragrance and flavor of the herb. I think it adds a unique flavor to this tasty slaw that’s a cool side to grilled meats. —June Cappetto, Seattle, Washington

"Really good variation when you are looking for a coleslaw that is a bit different. Used fresh herbs from my garden."

"I was excited to see this recipe in a recent S&D magazine because I always get this wonderful coleslaw from my favorite Italian market that has fresh basil and parmesan in it, and I adore it! I left out the dill and added some chopped green onion, red bell pepper and shredded parmesan. It was sooo good! May leave out the sugar next time and see how that turns out. I usually love sweet coleslaw, but I think I may like this one better without the sweetness."
