    1. This slaw sounds wonderful. I have one I created that is my go-to recipe, but I get tired of it, so it’s nice to have another one.

        1. My go-to, my invention is 1 head sliced cabbage with a dressing that includes 2 cups rice vinegar, 1 cup water, ~1/2t garlic powder, 2t crushed coriander seed, and ¼ cup neutral-flavored oil (I use avocado oil). I used to do it with Grains of Paradise in place of the coriander, but like the coriander better. You need to let it sit for at least 24 hours before serving. The oil is necessary to get the flavor to penetrate and to soften the cabbage (I’ve tried it without and it doesn’t work). If you try it I hope you enjoy it.

    2. I eat slaws like this on a weekly basis — the crunchy cabbage is addicting! I love the sound of that creamy yogurt dressing — this is such a great side dish. :)
