Great flavor but I couldn't get past the fact that it didn't taste like "coleslaw". I plan to try it again and instead of shredding and grating the veggies...I am going to chop more like a "salad". That way I don't have that mental thought of what coleslaw is supposed to be:) Thanks for the recipe though!!
