Pineapple-Papaya Slaw

This is no ordinary coleslaw! Bursting with flavor from fresh fruit, cilantro and red bell pepper, it just may become your new picnic mainstay. For easier preparation, buy packaged shredded cabbage. If you can't find papaya, substitute mango. —Taste of Home Test Kitchen

    Don't care for papaya - used mango instead. This is an awesome salad.

    A member at our Community Center's Pot Luck Luncheon brought this dish. I thought it was very good. The comments around me were all affirmative. Just did know it was a Taste of Home recipe until I saw it on the web-site.
