I think I'll try this next time without salting the cabbage. I rinsed, rinsed, rinsed and dried, dried, dried and still this turned out very salty. So, health knock #1: high sodium. Also, the rinse water was the most gorgeous shade of blue, so health knock #2: I feel like all that vitamin A went down the kitchen drain. Also, once the cabbage volume was reduced, there was way too much dressing. I thought I was being careful to not put on too much, but I misjudged so now I've got mush. Have to say the dressing is delicious, though. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I loved the dressing! I followed the instructions on the cabbage but may not have rinsed enough because it was way too salty. The dressing was so good that the next day I made it again except I used a 16oz bag of shredded coleslaw, 12oz bag of broccoli slaw and 8oz bag of shredded carrot. Easy, nutritious and delicious! Will be a staple this summer. item not reviewed by moderator and published
My husband can be hard to please when it comes to "light" recipes, but he really liked this one. Sometimes the artificial taste of the light mayo is too much, but this one is sweet with the brown sugar addition (I even used Splenda brown sugar)and a little bit spicy at the same time. To make things easier, I used slaw mix with carrots already in it, so all I had to do was chop the red easy! One tip, I only had to use 1/2 the dressing for my slaw. Don't add all of it until you decide if you even need it. item not reviewed by moderator and published
