This recipe came from the Savannah Country Cooking cookbook, Paula Deen's very first cookbook. It is served by Esther Shaver in her bookstore cafe. If Paula thinks it's that good, must be! So, I tried it, and it is. Different from a normal coleslaw, but goes well with just about any meal! Cook time would be chill time, but will vary if your serving immediately or chilling. Also, the prep time will vary if you have to shred all the ingredients. Both are guesstimates.
