    I never like slaw very much but this one looks delicious. The vinaigrette style dressing is much more appealing than the mayonnaise type usually made. Plus the tangerine adds great color and a welcomed change of direction. I might need to venture out and try this as it has a wonderful combination of ingredients!

    Yummy! I’m imagining this with baked fish from our Florida catch.

      You cannot imagine how much of this I ate:) I’m with you Winnie, gooey mayo on a slaw doesn’t cut it. This recipe is soooooooooo refeshing and delicate and ever so slightly flavored. You will love it. Just make sure you shred your cabbage into delicate little slices. Much better that way.

    This looks super yummy and way easy to make. I’m not a big fan of coleslaw with mayo. I like the freshness of the citrus. It reminds me of a delicious summer side dish.
