"I like to come up with a new and interesting coleslaw to serve at Thanksgiving. With all the rich, heavy foods that the holiday table brings, I really enjoy the contrast these cold, crisp, bracing salads provide."

This was a bit too tangy for us. I am not a fan of sweet side dishes but this one needed a little sugar - at least for our taste. I served this with a fairly sweet grilled chicken and rice. I thought the sweetness of the chicken would balance out the tartness of this slaw but it didn't work for us. Adding a bit of brown sugar to the dressing would be a good thing.
