I made this slaw this morning at first taste was bland. VERY important to let the flavors blend for at least an hour. I substituted stevia and left out the sugar. Lightly salt the shredded zucchini and squeeze the liquid out after the 30 minutes. I used a Miracle Whip(not light) type dressing also added 1/4 tsp. celery seed some minced onion and about a tsp. of white vinegar. Wow this is good! Read More

This is not as good as coleslaw with cabbage but sometimes I have a zucchini and I don't have a cabbage so it's a good recipe to have on hand. Next time I will definitely take the advice of other reviewers and add onion and vinegar. This is kind of bland as written. An apple would probably be good too. Read More

Pretty basic coleslaw, nice and refreshing on a 87 degree evening. Went great with our grilled pork chops. We really liked having coleslaw made out of zucchini instead of the typical cabbage. We used coarse sea salt and fresh ground pepper for added flavoring. Read More

Quick and easy slaw let it sit for a while to blend the carrot and zucchini flavour I used a tahini dressing with chilli/tahini/honey/lime/garlic/ginger. Turned out terrific with grilled fish. Read More

Great substitute for cole slaw. Didn't read directions first for draining zucchini that's a must! I shredded carrots and zucchini together in my cuisanart added other ingredients. Put in a colander to drain in fridge for a couple hours. I didn't have Miracle Whip so I used Ranch Dressing. Added Craisons next time will add pineapple. Read More
