"I've n thought about combining a 'slaw' mix with pasta. It is certainly a new concept to us. We'll be trying this soon."

"This is my go to recipe! I made this once, for something different, and I was asked for the recipe over and over again. EXCELLENT! To make it even better - add sliced, fresh radishes as a garnish."
