This recipe inspired in part or in whole from here


  1. Enjoyed this with the “Buffalo Chicken Wings” and also as a salad the next day. Makes quite a bit. To make it easy I just used the prepackage coleslaw mix which was about 3 cups. I think next time I’ll use 1/2 cup coconut or try to find a larger shred. Mine was pretty fine so the coconut was a little too much. Also used slivered almonds instead of ground. This would be great for a pot luck.

  2. I was pleasantly surprised by this recipe. I love that it is so different from most cole-slaws. I thought it would be dry because there isn’t a lot of sauce in this recipe, but it is not dry at all. I also tossed in raisins at the end to increase the sweet and spicy factor. Also, I liked that it was ready to eat right away and didn’t need to sit in the fridge for the flavors to blend, like with most cole-slaws.
