I was recently diagnosed with breast cancer. Searching for foods that would be diet helpful, several sites (academic sites as well as homeopathic)mentioned that raw or lightly cooked cabbage is a good choice. It also mentioned olive oil so I looked for those ingredients. I happened to have rice vinegar with basil and oregano seasoning so I used it. While it is not my preferred cole slaw recipe, I think it fit my needs and I will be having it a lot.

I don't like leaving negative reviews, but we really couldn't stand this. I even tried to fix it with the other reviewers tips...still pretty bad. The only thing "Mexican" about this is the cilantro, as written. Very little flavor, and the flavor it has is not good.

I made this exactly as written and found it to be bland. I added one teaspoon cumin, 2 chopped jalapeño peppers, seeds removed from one, the juice and zest of one lime.

This is a nice change from the mayo-based coleslaws. Every time I bring it to a potluck the dish is empty. It is best used the same day, but given an hour or so to marinate. I do not use the cilantro. I have added a tablespoon of lime, a couple tablespoons of grated onion, 2 tablespoons of sugar, a teaspoon of celery salt, and a sweet pepper chopped into bite-sized pieces.
