In a medium mixing bowl, combine slaw dressing ingredients. Stir to evenly incorporate all ingredients.
Add finely chopped cabbage to a large serving bowl.
To serve immediately, pour dressing over chopped cabbage and toss to evenly coat. Top with sliced almonds and serve.
If serving later, do not combine. Cover dressing and slaw and refrigerate up to 3 days. Combine and toss to serve.
