The first time I rated this, I only gave it a 3, but I've got to change it to a 4. We had it the day I made it and it only tasted like coleslaw with taco seasoning in it, but the next day it was a good bit better and then the day after that, it was really good. So, if you know far enough in advance, make it two days before you'll eat it. It has a great flavor then!

I made this recipe b/c of the great reviews it received. However I was sorely disappointed. The amount of cumin was way too overpowering. I think this recipe can have a few overhauls in the spice department, but I really like the addition of radishes.

Great!!! Brought this camping and served at a potluck at the campground, everyone wanted the recipe. We like our coleslaw a little sweet so I added apprx 1/4 sugar.

Really, really good--it's got a nice kick to it. A nice change from regular coleslaw. Will definitely make again. Thanks for a great recipe!

Wonderful recipe! I hate coleslaw, never eat the stuff. But this one is really good, not too mayonaisey and has a nice little kick. Yummy! Very good addition to BBQ menu.

Excellent!! I stumbled on this looking for something to go with my Chili Cornbread Pie. WOW! I will be making this often. After reading the other reviews, I used half the cumin and half the cayenne called for and I used a packaged slaw mix. Thanks for a great recipe, Denyse!

I liked this coleslaw, but my husband took one bite and couldn't eat anymore. He is not a picky eater so I was suprised. I won't make this again in case someone else was to have that same response.
