This recipe makes a lot of dressing.  You may want to cut the recipe in half or make and save for later.
The flavor is so light and tangy your friends will be talking about this for parities to come!
New summer spin on cole slaw that can be fun the entire year round!  Make it more oriental by adding some rice noodles and chicken!
Using the entire head of Napa Cabbage you will have Calypso Napa Cabbage Salad till the cows come home!
Thanks to my friends Jeri and Wendy for sharing!
