Delicious! I didn't use all the dressing bc I like my slaw less "dressed!"sweet and tangy-sooooo yum! item not reviewed by moderator and published
It's delicious! I'm trying to keep track of my calories... how many calories do you think this is per cup? Thanks! item not reviewed by moderator and published
amazing!!! Perfect slaw....I also cut back on the poppy seeds and only added 1 tsp of salt. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Made this last night with some last minute substitutions. Used some minced red onion instead of the scallions, and used a bag of coleslaw mix because I'm lazy. At the last minute, I added a handful of dried cranberries because they were pretty. Served with BBQ chicken sandwiches and there were NO leftovers. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Good, made it for a party. Served with pulled pork. Added 1/2 red cabbage. Used a food processor to grate everything. Did not use the full amount of poppy seeds bc I only had a small container of them. Would make again item not reviewed by moderator and published
I loved this. I didn't even have all of the ingredients but it still turned out amazing. I used Leeks instead of scallions. I had this Champagne Pear Vinegar that I used instead of apple cider vinegar. I used green apples. To cut the calories a bit, I swapped out half the mayonnaise with 0% Greek Yogurt (Fage brand). I made half the amount of slaw but used about 3/4 of dressing (luckily I cut down on the mayo :)). The dressing was amazing I saved the rest for just a general salad dressing. I cant wait to try this again true to the recipe. My husband found it a little sweet so I might cut the honey a bit but I thought it was just great the way it was. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Very, very good! We all loved it... a little something for everyone...a little savory, a little sweet. Apple was a nice change from the usual slaw... but still crisp... interesting! I wasn't sure how it would go over, so I 1/2'd the dressing... used 1/2 bag of preshredded coleslaw mix & 1/2 large Fugi apple as the reviewer below suggested. Just a tiny bit left after feeding four as an accompaniment for chicken, chardonnay & apple sausages. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I used a bag of coleslaw to make this quicker, I also was cooking for 2 so I used half the bag and only 1 apple. I cut the dressing ingredients in half and it was a wonderful side dish to our BBQ pork chops! Highly recommend! item not reviewed by moderator and published
This slaw is very good. My family used to to put on pulled pork sandwiches. I am not a cole slaw lover, but this was pretty good. I don't love it, but I would still make it again especially if we were having guests. BTW: I didn't use the scallions or parsley because I did not have them on hand. I don't think it really made difference though. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Made as directed for a topping on a pulled pork sandwich. It was really tasty. Even the coleslaw "haters" liked it. Apple flavors paired nicely with the BBQ sauce from the sandwiches. item not reviewed by moderator and published
