  1. I love that this has no mayo so it’s less likely to cause food poisoning at a summer picnic. I also love the sweetness that the addition of mandarin oranges brings to the party.

    Next month, I am posting a recipe round up of coleslaw recipes and would love to include a photo from this site, along with a link back here for the recipe. May I have your permission to do so?

    Thank you for your consideration.

  2. Hi Patti,
