I was hesitant about the feta but it really makes a difference in the taste. Nice flavor and I think perfect for a potluck. I did do what others suggest- used 1/4 cup water oil and rice vinegar. I also added a shredded carrot for color and added flavor. Read More

I'm eating this as I type and I'm surprised and a little bit disappointed to say it's actually a little bland for me. i did add some cucumber jalapeno and red bell pepper though so the vinaigrette may be stretched too thin. the feta is great in here though and it's quite nice and light. will add more salt pepper slightly more vinegar and maybe a dash of tabasco and squeeze of lemon juice.

This is sooo good! I have been serving it instead of a regaluar salad. I used equal parts (1/4 cup) water vinegar and olive oil. Read More

Good slaw. I reduced the olive oil a bit and used basil/marjoram as someone else suggested. The feta is an unusual and good touch. Read More

I would first like to thank you Shirina for a slaw recipe with no sugar. I've made this twice differently each time. The first time I seasoned it with "grains of paradise" (an african pepper); the second time I used italian seasoning & left out the carrots & onions. Both times I used rice vinegar instead of distilled & followed the suggestion of one reviewer to use 1/4 cup each of vinegar olive oil & water; also used way less salt (about 1/2 tsp). I left out the feta cheese both times because I wanted a plain slaw. If I want to do italian again I would probably choose to use a combination of just basil & marjoram which would suit my tastes better. Red cabbage also works well. It is a very refreshing salad. This recipe is a definite keeper & I will be using it a lot. Read More

I made this slaw one night when we had some friends over. It was the one thing that everyone had seconds of! I will make this recipe a regular in my kitchen. I did cut the olive oil back to 1/2 cup. Read More

i followed this recipe as described with the exception of using less oil as other reviewers have noted but found the taste a bit too salty for my liking. I would recommend adding a little at a time and tasting along the way. Read More

Good alternative too the original. Still I think next time I will use less oil. I also soaked the cabbage in saltwater rinsed it then dried it. It got lots of compliments at the potluck. Read More

Wonderful recipe! My family doesn't like traditional cole slaw but this was gone in minutes. Tupperware has a GREAT Italian seasoning that I really like with this recipe. Read More

O.M.G. This is the best coleslaw recipe I've ever had the pleasure to review!!!! I didn't have feta so I left it out. I was a little concerned about the amount of pepper... but it was just right. This is an excellent recipe.... hope you like it as much as I did! Oh... and IMHO... the oil amount is just right. I'm still munching on it 3 days later and it just keeps getting better. Read More
