She shares in the caption, “I learned this coleslaw recipe from a great book that a friend gave to me and I have been making a simplified version.”

The Yummy Spoonfuls co-owner continued, “Have fun and make it your own! It is a great base for meals instead of just lettuce ... a coleslaw with no mayo! I will share the real version from the book next time I make it.”
