Asian Coleslaw

This recipe involves some fine chopping (a job for hubby perhaps?) if you don't want to do too much munching as you eat, but the result will definitely be worth any effort. The dressing can make or break a good salad and this one is delicious. Add freshly chopped mango if you wish to make the whole dish taste sweeter.
