We really liked this coleslaw. The bitter was just enough to offset the sweet. The only thing I would change would be to cut the amount of sauce in half. It was too much sauce for that much slaw. Read More

Too sweet! Next time I would use only 1/4 cup of sugar and maybe even less. Read More

My family thought this was very good, although sweet. I added lemon juice to kill the sweetness. Next time I'll adjust the sugar as I make it, so it's not as sweet. Served this with crab cakes and homemade french fries. Read More

I leave out the horseradish and use 1/3 cup Miracle Whip and 1/3 cup Real Mayonnaise. Read More

The recipe's name is correct but the horseradish helps balance out the sweetness. I didn't use coleslaw mix just shredded the cabbage and carrots in the food processor and used "light" salad dressing and Splenda for the sugar. I liked it probably would cut back a little on the sugar/Splenda next time but wouldn't hesitate to make again. Thanks Rick for sharing your recipe. Read More

This is a good start, and makes a great slaw with a few modifications. 1) Nobody in my family likes it that sweet, and I cook for a diabetic, so I use one heaping tablespoon of Bochasweet and no sugar. 2) I don’t buy bagged slaw. This is enough for about 1/2 a head green cabbage + a chunk of red cabbage + 1carrot. 3) I use 1 rounded tablespoon horseradish + 1to 1.5 teaspoons spicy mustard. Read More

Skipped the poppy seeds (none on hand), used spicy mustard instead of horseradish. Good stuff! Read More

Cooking for a diabetic, and even the non-diabetics in the family thought this was way too sweet. Cut the sweet to 1 scant tablespoon of "Sola" brand sweetener, and it was perfect. Also skipped the poppy seeds (none on hand) and chopped the (purple and green) cabbage and one large carrot in my processor instead of buying the more expensive pre-chopped. . With those modifications, I will make this many times again. Thanks for posting the recipe Read More
