This is a different twist on coleslaw that goes over really well. It is based on a recipe I found in a cookbook but I found it was much simpler to make this way and people seemed to like it better as well.

I made this following the receipe and it was really good! Ialso made a custom version for me. Insted of canola I used olive oil, low sodium soy sauce, splenda, omitted the almonds and sunflower seeds. I sprinkled with chow mein noodles and it was awesome. I like this more than the mayo version cole slaw! Read More

This is an interesting recipe. I loved the combination of almonds and sunflower kernels with the cabbage. I cut back the sugar to 3 Tbsp because 6 just seemed way too sweet and I used closer to 12 oz. shredded cabbage and it was still a very moist salad. I'd make this again because mayo-based salads are so repetitive but I may have to keep looking for that perfect vinegar-based salad. Read More

Wow incredible. I made it sugar free using baking Splenda and the entire family loved it. I didnt have time to refrigerate it so I put the bowel in the freezer while the bison was on the grill and it tastes great. Read More

Best mayo free coleslaw I have ever made! You won't miss the mayonaise; the flavor is delicious. This was a big hit with my family! I will make it again. Read More

This is an excellent dressing for a slaw!! We omitted the sunflower seeds (preference) and used half cabbage and half shredded kale from our garden. Wow...I'm sure this will be a new favorite. I think it would also be excellent with cranberries or a tart apple. Read More

Another delicious salad! I'm on a quest to use all that is in our fridge. This was a great recipe to use up the half-head of cabbage. I also used up the last of the carrots by shredding them and adding them to the mix. I prepared this in the morning, adding the almonds and the sunflower seeds and served it at dinner time. I did replace the 6 TB of sugar with 4 TB of Stevia and it worked well for our tastes. This could easily become a main dish meal by adding grilled chicken or shrimp. I served this with 'Sweet and Spicy Grilled Shrimp' and 'Stuffed Pea Pods', both from AR. Thanks, Shalvie for sharing your recipe. Read More

I have made this salad 4 times now and only found it this summer. I needed to find some cabbage recipes since I had 8 large heads from my garden. I took some to my neighbors and she said she doesn't really like cole slaw but she loved mine. I added apples to one batch and added carrots from my garden for more color. I also add crasins. I made some for Thanksgiving yesterday and I just added some leftover turkey to it and it is delicious. Awesome recipe! Read More
