    This is delicious! I served it last night to company and it was a hit - everyone wanted the recipe.

    We had this yesterday for lunch - just my hubby & me and we cleaned the plate!!! I used a whole cabbage and doubled the dressing. Tossed it with 2 boneless skinless chicken thighs, thinly sliced, sauted and cooled - the dish was brilliant!!! We will be making this over and over again.
