Mustards Grill's curried slaw

Mustards Grill's curried slaw (Glenn Koenig / Los Angeles Times / June 15, 2013)


Dear SOS:

I recently dined at Mustards Grill in Napa. We had the most delicious crispy calamari with a curried slaw that was out of this world. I'm hoping you can get the recipe for the slaw. I would go there every day if I lived in the area.
