Coleslaw updated

Nothing better to cool down a hot evening or a spicy main dish like coleslaw.
My grandmother had her favorite: shredded green cabbage soaked in salted water
to crisp it, then drained.  A dash of vinegar, sugar to balance the tang, and mayonnaise to taste.
Mixed well, perhaps a bit of red cabbage for color, and a sprinkle of dried mustard for
spice.  Simple and delicious, and you probably already have a variation of it. 

But want trying to impress at a summer potluck? Try this variation via Martha Stewart. 
Napa cabbage, radishes, daikon, and a zingy dressing that will knock the socks off of
your conventional slaw.  Find it here.
