Made it, against my better judgement, as it was a Rachael Ray recipe.  I had to throw it out as the slaw was discoloured by the vinegar and the slaw taste was terrible.  Sorry. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Awesome! Easy and light, perfect for my pulled pork sandwiches :) item not reviewed by moderator and published
We love the taste of cilantro in our family. I make this with a bunch chopped to add a fresh flavor. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Nice foundation recipe. I used celery SEED instead of celery salt and adjusted the proportions to the classic vinagrette 2 Tablespoons vinegar to 1/4 cup oil. Also added some onion and cut the sugar by half. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Nice, light taste. Not a fan of mayo in slaw, so this fit the bill. Added a touch of sesame oil just to give it a bit of a kick. #Bam item not reviewed by moderator and published
I used only 1 TBS of sugar and thought it was too sweet. I would recommend making the dressing without the sugar and add it in until it fits your taste. Otherwise it's quite nice! item not reviewed by moderator and published
My husband really liked the recipe when I used the peanut oil. I served in on pulled chicken sandwiches. Makes a great po boy! Will try it with vegetable oil next time. Also I cut back the sugar to two teaspoons and used white balsamic vinegar. I will definitely be making this my new coleslaw recipe. Who thought you could have a great coleslaw without mayonaise? item not reviewed by moderator and published
My family loves this cole slaw. My mother-in-law likes leftover slaw on sandwiches. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I just love this recipe, nice and light and flavorful! I watched the video, so I knew she used celery seed in her recipe, even though it's not listed here. We used red wine vinegar and peanut oil. So simple, so delish! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Husband does not like to use mayo. I make this for him often. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I substituted the peanut/vegetable oil for olive oil and I added a bit of celery seed. Turned out great! Thank you. item not reviewed by moderator and published
So quick and easy, especially if using the packaged slaw mix. And, it's a great base. I do substitute celery salt, and I sometimes add a little dry mustard and/or celery seed and/or chopped green onion or grated regular onion. But I don't have to! The secret is the red wine vinegar, I think. I use peanut oil at home for the extra flavor, but substitute canola when taking it somewhere - you never know who's allergic anymore. When I'm shredding my own (red cabbage I'll shred carrot, green or red pepper, radish, English cucumber, or whatever. But again, I don't have to. Thanks, Rachel. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Hard to believe something so simple can be so great. I remembered the celery salt only after having put 1/2 regular salt, so the first time my salt was 1/2 and 1/2. Subsequently I've used all celery salt. This is such a hit, I've resorted to keeping a bottle of dressing made up in the frig to put on individual servings as it doesn't keep if dressed all at once. My husband is having a bowl as a bedtime snack right now. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Just what I wanted to have, but haven't tasted it yet. Thanks item not reviewed by moderator and published
Best vinegarette coleslaw I ever had. Simpler than my old recipe. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Delicious, super easy and quick to make, and most important, inexpensive. I also did not feel guilty eating it, as it wasn’t heavy and mayonnaise-, like regular coleslaw. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Great recipe and so simple. I add a little grated onion. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I always thought a bachelors cookbook with simple recipes would be great. This would be the coleslaw recipe in the cookbook. We grated the cabbage instead of shredding it and used fresh cabbage and carrots. But the dressing was the kicker and was excellent. I think the red wine vinegar is the key. Best slaw I have ever had. Thanks Rachel. After 44 years, I will not need to look for another slaw recipe. I ate two oversize helpings and put it on my hotdog. My 9 year old sun even liked it and he hates coleslaw. Well done. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I was pleasantly surprised by how good this was! I served with BBQ pork sandwiches and it was a terrific addition. I used fresh white cabbage and little red cabbage, white balsamic instead of red wine vinegar (which is milder and fruitier) and splenda bc that's what i had....i used celery salt as suggested in reviews and i also added a little cayenne. turned out terrific. i will make again. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I am a fan of this recipe as is. However, one variation that is ALWAYS a big hit at picnics (especially when served with BBQ pulled pork!) is to add these ingredients to your taste for each bag of slaw: 1/2 ? Finely diced Jalepeno pepper (no seeds) 1/2 ? Chopped Cilantro (remove stems) dash of cayenne pepper add a little more red wine vinegar Enjoy! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I liked this slaw, I added thinly sliced red onion and it was a very good side with minimal effort. The recipe is wrong and replace salt with celery salt. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Again, Rachel Ray has come to us with something anybody could have figured out for himself. No zip, no zing, no flavor. If you want to make this recipe better, throw an extra two minutes into it. Add some lemon juice, some finely diced onion, horseradish, a bit of mustard, dill if you're into it, try bacon crumbles, and heck, while you're at it, use the bacon grease as a replacement for your oil. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I really enjoyed this slaw. My husband, who LOVES cole slaw, devoured it. It is a healthy alternative to the mayonaise version. And very simple to make. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Great and easy to make. The dressing is perfect and goes great with any salad. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Easy and pretty good. Lots of left overs.. item not reviewed by moderator and published
A great quick slaw recipe! I'd advise only making enough for one meal because leftovers don't keep well. The next day mine was a soggy inedible mess. Luckily I had another bag of shredded cabbage in the fridge and whipped up another batch. I think the 1 tsp. salt should have said 1 tsp. celery seeds. I used only half that amount and it came out great. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I really enjoyed the sweet/sour aspect of this, and it really could not have been any easier to make. Will make again. item not reviewed by moderator and published
The 2nd-last ingredient should read "1 tsp celery salt" instead of "1 tsp salt." I saw Rachael make it on the show, and that's what she put in it. It's delish! Although I reduced the oil a bit. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Finally, a slaw that is artery-friendly! Very tasty, this one. I've made it with half sugar, half splenda to decrease calories and it's just as good. I make this a lot in the summer. Try it! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I brought this one to a company function and I haven't been allowed to bring anything else since. I usually substitute 1/2 the red wine vinegar with apple cider vinegar to cut the tartness and add some mustard seeds to make it more like my fav bread and butter pickles. Delicious. item not reviewed by moderator and published

I found this recipe lacking in flavor. It needs nuts or seeds. I have a recipe like this, but you add toasted almonds and sunflower seeds. item not reviewed by moderator and published

This is not my favorite Rachel Ray recipe. Not bad for an outdoor event, but I'd rather have regular slaw. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I made this for a Father's Day cookout and we thought it was all right. I had to add more oil and vinegar in order to coat all 16 oz. of cole slaw mix. It needed quite a bit of salt and pepper before it had any flavor at all. I think I was expecting more of an Asian slaw because of the peanut oil. But it did not get any special flavor from the oil at all. I'm not so sure I'd make this again. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I made this to take to a potluck outside party. I added dried cherries to the slaw and all seemed to enjoy the dish. Great to use instead of mayonnaise for a summer outing. Nancy, Highland, MI item not reviewed by moderator and published
