Very delicious! I used honey instead of agave nectar and made the asian version. I didn't have any horseradish so I omitted that. I used more sesame seeds for the crunch. Even good the second day! I don't know what size package coleslaw mix you used. Mine was 6 ounces and I used a bit less mayo than the recipe called for. I also put a bit of hot pepper flakes because I like it spicy. Thanks for a great recipe!


This was easy! I bought a fairly large bag of coleslaw mix, so I halved the recipe since I was only using half the bag. With half the bag and half the dressing, the mixture was a little too wet for my taste, so I just added some more of the coleslaw mix until I got it just right. I made this the traditional way, so I used lemon juice instead of vinegar and omitted the sesame oil. I also omitted the horseradish because I can't have spicy food. All in all, this was a very quick and easy dish. It kind of reminded me of KFC coleslaw a little bit (which I loved, so that's a compliment!)  :)
