    I used a bag of slaw mix from Publix. A small sprinle of Celery salt. Left out the salt and the peppers, radishes, and jicama . Grined some fresh black pepper in it as well. My hubbie is very picky about his slaw, and he liked this!
    AND I can eat it too!!!
    Yippie!
    Thank You!
    :)

    Really enjoyed this slaw. I used my food processor and chopped the veggies small like KFC. I also omitted the jimcama and added a small apple. I also added a few jalapeno slices finely chopped because Iike a kicks in my slaw... - 12/7/11
