Love this receive! Simple, quick and I was enjoying "before it chilled" so I know it will be great later!! I did make one change!! Because I have to avoid soy, I do not use mayonnaise (have not found one without soy) so I used plain Dannon yogurt!! Taste great to me!!!! Read More

I made it exactly to the recipe. I found the dressing to be so bland that I ended up putting some bottled slaw dressing on it too to add some flavor. I don t think I will make it again. It was disappointing. Read More

Love Red cabbage and was so glad to find this! Made it last night and refrigerated overnight stirring occasionally. I didn't realize until writing this review that I forgot to add the cranberries (oops); but will next time. We enjoyed the walnuts in this. Thanks for a wonderful side dish with pork sandwiches. This is a keeper AuntE!! Read More

I am getting ready to make this slaw for the second time. Now that I've made it according to the recipe, I will add a little more mayo and a lot more vinegar. (The first go-around wasn't quite tangy enough for us). I will also leave out the sugar. I love the addition of the cranberries and walnuts. This slaw was better after sitting in the fridge a couple of days.....got better and better with time. Read More

Oh my goodness! I had to force myself to quit eating this and I just made it (and haven't even added the walnuts yet)! I knew I was going to like this recipe, but I love it! I was being greedy, so, I used about 2/3 cup mayo, 3 tbsp. vinegar, 1 tbsp. sugar and 2/3-3/4 cup cranberries, plus lots of pepper. Yum! Yum! If I can stay out of it, I'll add the nuts tomorrow, so they don't get soft in the frig overnight. I hope I didn't mess it up by adding too much dressing, esp. after it sits, lol, but it sure tastes good right now! Thank you so much for posting this recipe, AuntE Read More

I didn't have carrots but I did have apples and it worked for me! Also I didn't have cranberries but I did have raisins and that too worked for me. Read More

Easy excellent and mostly good-for-you ingredients too! Tastes even better after a few days. I prefer more tangy than sweet so it's either more apple cider vinegar or less sugar...easy fix. Have never made a red cabbage slaw but I think I prefer this over green! Thanks AuntE! Read More

I'm so glad I came across this recipe... To say it's delicious is an understatement. I used light salad dressing so since it's sweet I didn't have to use the extra sugar. I did add a squeeze of lemon and wow my husband ate the heck out of it!!!! This slaw is better after it sits a while so make it the night before... I'm gonna try this slaw in a fish or shrimp taco.... I can't wait! Read More

For such a simple recipe it was fabulous. I used raisins and pecans (toasted) because that was what I had on hand. We loved it! I will be making it again this week! Read More
