      This sounds good and I'll try your recipe soon. I like that you don't add mayo to your dressing :) I don't make my coleslaw with mayo either.

      Lol! My bad. My apology on my spelling (you're instead of your). Really, I'm also craving for that, ma'am. I just have to add carrots and mayonnaise on it if I can't make your fabulous dressing. Some of the ingredients are not available at the local market. :(

      Anyway, it will be my first list on my food hunt this week. :)

      Adding blue cheese is something I have not thought about. I have feta in the fridge so I think I will try that...I love coleslaw for the 4th of July and throughout the hot summer.
