This was a nice change! I made a double batch for a large gathering and divided into two parts. In one I added some dried cranberries and diced apple. In the other I added about 3 Tablespoons of pineapple juice and 1/2 cup of diced pineapple. Both were a hit! Read More

I was not a fan of the addition of sugar and hot sauce to coleslaw but I’ve never considered adding poppyseeds or mustard powder so thank you for that! Read More

I like this recipe. I added dill because i love it and radicchio because it was in my fridge. Also, i hate carrots - so i used my food processor to shred some broccoli stems. Aside from the dill - i didn't mess with the dressing. Very good. Read More

This recipe is good a little on the sweet side but nice and fresh. I always make recipes without changes first and next time I might scale back a bit on the sugar and oil. Its quite good as is but I think it would be good with a minor adustment as well. Read More

I didn't have any poppy seeds but I added celery seed added a few chopped green onions and switched the sugar to agave syrup (only 2 tbsp.) and this turned out delicious. My husband and I both loved it! it was fresh and light which is exactly what we were looking for. it paired very well with bbq'd smoked pork chops and corn on the cob. Read More

A tad sweet with only 1 tablespoon sugar and 2 tablespoons light olive oil. Used lots (for me) salt and pepper but no hot sauce. With cilantro would be great on fish tacos. Read More

Great recipe since I don't like mayonnaisey coleslaws. I just used a 1 lb package of pre-made coleslaw mix, and it turned out great! (and easy!) Read More

Tried this recipe a week ago and have made it twice since. Really good. I added some finely chopped celery and onions and grated some radish and it turned out even tastier. Read More
