This was an excellent and different slaw but I followed some suggestions from other reviews to make it tastier. I also cut it in half. I used more dried cranberries and walnuts. I also toasted the walnuts as suggested. I also didn't have white vinegar on hand and so I combined balsamic red wine and rice vinegar all together. They really worked together well. I used 1/2 as much oil and less sugar too. I also didn't want to buy dry mustard so I used dijon mustard instead. It was so delicious and I paired it with a pumpkin soup from this website also for a nice fall dinner. The slaw holds up really well too in the fridge. Just delicious. Read More

Not much flavor at all. I made it for my son's graduation party. There was WAY too much left over so I wasn't the only one that felt that way. Read More

Delicious! I make this dish each Thanksgiving. Making this hours ahead allows the flavors to marry. Use organic ingredients if possible which is not only healthier but more flavorful. Makes good leftovers for days remaining crisp. I made only slight variations. They are as follows: 1) Chopped organic green & purple cabbage (16 oz) NOTE: Using shredded may result in the wilting that some cooks have complained of. 2) Unsweetened cranberries - the corn sugar and/or syrup that is often added is unnecessary. 3) Sauteed walnuts w/ olive oil. NOTE: Olive oil is not heat stable and should never be used over medium or higher heat. It should really only be used over low heat to avoid toxic gases. 4) 2 Tbsp sugar 5) White wine vinegar vs. distilled 6) Olive oil vs. vegetable oil 7) 1 shredded carrot View the photo that I've added to see the resulting festive appearance. Yum! Read More

This was DELISH! I subbed green onions for regular onions added more walnuts (toasted). I found there to be alot of oil & dressing so I'll probably 1/2 the oil and chill out on the dressing next time. Read More

Very Good and quite healthy! I used less sugar in the dressing but other than that I followed the recipe. I ate this for several days; surprisingly it held up quite well in the refrigerator. Read More

I added the dressing a few hours ahead of time and don't recommend doing that. It really wilted the cabbage. I didn't have the dry mustard so I used fresh grated horseradish. I deleted the onion because I thought it would be to overpowering but I think next time green onions would work. I also used pistachio which made it really festive for Christmas Eve dinner. There is way too much dressing left over. I suggest halving it. Read More

Very good but will reduce the sugar and dressing next time. The next day the portion at the top of the bowl (furthest from the dressing that settled at the bottom) was great though. Read More
