woodahs,

Cole slaw is either good, bad, or indifferent depending on how it's made. The raw cabbage is VERY good for many reasons. What you add can either KEEP it all good (like tossing with cider vinegar and a bit of sweetning (artificial to keep the dish very dietetic) or make it considerably less good by slathering it with a half bottle of MAYO and making it an all fat product...

Worst is a mess made with some hydrogenated MAYO substitute- then it borders on dangerous!

I make my own mayo with tofu - so if you get a tofu mayo (theres one called vegenaise) it should be fine. And cabbage and carrots are fine.

Hello, If you're only worried about transfats, then you might want to look up the old gramma recipes. They used to use light cream, apple cider vinegar, and a little sat and sugar.

The tofu dressing sounds good though. How do you make it?
