This recipe is one Deb created for the school salad bar to meet school nutrition standards. The coleslaw takes on an Asian flavor and was such a success that a school food service inspector asked for the recipe!

Combine vinaigrette, soy sauce and garlic to make dressing. Mix remaining ingredients and toss with dressing. Let stand in refrigerator for about an hour before serving.
