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
I love this slaw and make it often. It is the only slaw I can get my whole family to eat and pairs up great with white fish. I dice the apple and it works out wonderfully. item not reviewed by moderator and published

Absolutely wonderful with the Pioneer Woman's spicy pulled pork recipe. We made it like wraps. So good! item not reviewed by moderator and published
great...i cut the salt in half and left some chunks of apple in w.the julienne. kept overnight well. item not reviewed by moderator and published
This is the best coleslaw and even my kids who hate coleslaw will eat this. Just use one tablespoon of the poppyseeds, not 1/3 cup (that must be a misprint. item not reviewed by moderator and published
This was delicious! Loved the sweet apple to balance the tart of the dressing and make this slaw pop. I happened to have apple flavored balsamic vinegar on hand, so I used that instead of apple cider vinegar, and it was so flavorful! This makes A TON, at least for just my husband and I, so I may cut it all back a bit next time. Definitely something we'll make again and again. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Made this to go with the Duck Poppers elsewhere on this site: http://www.foodnetwork.com/recipes/duck-poppers-recipe/index.html Since I didn't have poppy seed on hand, I used 2 TBS of black mustard seed just for looks. Also added 1/4 cup of sour cream. Fantastic! The poppers, not so much.... item not reviewed by moderator and published

This was quick and easy...and definite success at the family gathering! item not reviewed by moderator and published
good, cold and the textures were amazing, will become a new favorite. item not reviewed by moderator and published
This poppy seed dressing was the perfect balance of tart and sweet! I've been searching for a cole slaw dressing like this forever. You can save yourself some time by using the bagged prewashed slaw mix. Then all you need to hand chop are the apples and onions. I only had red onions in my house, but they working fine. Also, an earlier review was right about the amount of poppy seeds; 1/4 of a cup was plenty. item not reviewed by moderator and published
It was very good. But, I personally think that it could use a little more honey and less salt. item not reviewed by moderator and published

I was looking for a coleslaw that was just a little different and this was absolutely perfect. It had such a nice flavor. I used about half the amount of poppy seeds thought. Dressing would also be good for regular salad. item not reviewed by moderator and published

I will never ever use another cole slaw recipe again. This is fabulous! item not reviewed by moderator and published
This coleslaw dressing is the best I've ever tasted, and I didn't even use the poppy seeds. The coleslaw is especially great on turkey burgers, but the dressing can be used on almost any kind of salad, especially those using fresh or dried fruit. EXCELLENT! item not reviewed by moderator and published
This is the best coleslaw recipe ever! Sweet and creamy. The Poppyseed dressing is out of this world! I use it in many other salads as well. I use a little less than 1/4 cup poppyseeds however, and that's more than enough. This is a huge hit every time I make it. Beware though, it makes ALOT! More like 10-12 servings than 6-8. item not reviewed by moderator and published

This recipe is sooooo easy! I saw about one second of the show and decided to look it up online later....I'm glad I did... the outcome is GREAT!!! I usually don't like coleslaw and the kids are pretty picky. They loved it as did my husband. I considered putting less apples in as it seemed too much....ended up putting all of them in and it was perfect. item not reviewed by moderator and published

What a nice change from regular coleslaw. I used half red and half green cabbage (Saw that on the show but didn't say that in the recipe.) Beware-makes a lot. Glad though, I have given samples to my friends. This is certainly a keeper. item not reviewed by moderator and published
