You have to really like vinegar to like this slaw. I like the fact that it is much more healthful than the kind laden with mayo but I have to say I do like the creamy kind better. Hubby definitely isn't a fan of vinegar so he didn't care too much for it. Probably won't make again. Read More

Emptying fridge had half a head Savoy cabbage half a tiny head radicchio and half a sweet onion. With triple the shredded stuff I tripled the dressing. And this is great! Will definitely make it again! Read More
