Celery seeds add nice flavor to this tangy oil-free slaw. This goes well with fried fish.

I had some food processor shredded cabbage and carrots from another recipe in the fridge so this was a good way to use it. This is a fantastic recipe for anybody watching calories fat and carbs; there's no oil or mayo. The only change I made was using Truvia instead of sugar. I've always used celery seed in cole slaw (either vinegar or mayo-based) but I've not used red wine vinegar before. It was much mellower (is that a word?) than cider vinegar and this was a success.

I rushed in after being out late removed some chicken from the frig chopped it up and threw it in a skillet with BBQ sauce to heat it up. I located this 5 Minute Slaw in my recipe box and whipped it up. Then as I finished reading the recipe I realized I was supposed to let it marinate 4-6 hours. Hmmm not 5 minutes after all! No time for refrigerating! And that was my fault for not reading the recipe. Now for what I thought of it. I didn't like it at all when I tasted it by itself. I think I prefer regular vinegar instead of the red wine vinegar. But I thought it was ok when put on the BBQ sandwich. Somehow the BBQ sauce and chicken tempered the flavor of the red wine vinegar in the coleslaw. So not a total loss but I won't fix it again. Read More

I'm going to try it again with much less salt. I think it will be a fine recipe then. Read More

Have looked for a long time for a slaw recipe that would come close to my mother-in-law’s (no oil or mayonnaise!). Made this slaw for my husband and he gives it high praise! Read previous reviews and also recommend using less salt. Read More
