This recipe is a different twist to the classical cole slaw. It is light (it is made with yogurt rather than mayo), refreshing, and it is a breeze to prepare. The spices used- ginger, allspice and white pepper - provide a nice, mildly spiced island flavor to the tropical fruit. It makes a great side dish for barbecues, and it is especially good with grilled pork. A delicious tropical - tasting salad.
