This was a fantastic dish, but only with some modifications to the recipe to make it that way; hence, I deducted stars. I used all quantities and ingredients indicated and followed the recipe steps exactly, except that I used equal amounts of oil and vinegar, as other reviewers suggested. If I had not followed this suggestion, the dish would have been overwhelmingly oily.
After letting the slaw marinate, I tasted it for salt and pepper (I had added the pinch of each, as suggested in the recipe, when I mixed it earlier). I found that I needed to add 1/2 tsp. salt and 1/4 tsp. pepper to the slaw to make it edible; otherwise, it would have been completely bland.
With the modifications listed above, this dish was the hit of my family's Christmas gathering. We ate it for two more days, and it remained crunchy and delicious. It was the perfect dish to balance out the heavier foods of a Christmas dinner, and I'll be making it again in the future.
