Cole Slaw with Raisins

After making this recipe exactly as the recipe indicated, we were elated! And if you like raisins, you, too, will love this twist on an old classic. The honey and dash of sugar give it a little sweetness along with the raisins, while the mustard adds great color and creates a fabulous balance of flavor for the dressing. This dish combines perfectly with pan sauteed fish and we are definitely serving it the next time we make ribs.
