Pack in antioxidants. The ultimate in simplicity and refreshing taste, this coleslaw is flecked with green, red and yellow vegetables, the colors signifying the presence of antioxidants (cabbage is thought to have anti-cancer activity). I like its crispy, sweet-and-sour taste, unlike that of a creamy coleslaw.

I didn't have cabbage on hand, so i used red and green peppers, onion, carrots, and canned corn. Mixed up the dressing and tossed. It was delicious. I may make my salads like this more often!!! Read More

This salad was terrific! I used a whole medium sized head of cabbage and a whole jalapeno pepper diced very fine. There was plenty of dressing. Husband absolutely loved it but it was just a bit too spicy for me. Will use a little less jalapeno next time but there will definitely be a next time! Read More

This was very good. I was looking for a crunchy summer salad with lots of antioxidant ingredients that was filling had no oil and was low in calories. This definitely fits the bill. Followed recipe exactly except for jalapeno - used just a tad only because I'm not a fan of really spicey hot food. Read More

Great twist on coleslaw. Loved the addition of corn to this and the jalapeño added just enough kick without overpowering the other flavors. I used bagged slaw rather than shredding cabbage and used 1/4 cup sugar rather than Splenda. My family and my parents really enjoyed this recipe. Read More

This was excellent! I used sugar and cut way back but only due to personal preference. This is a perfect summer side dish. All of the different colors in this made it very appealing and "easy on the eyes". Thanks for sharing! Read More

We consistently try new recipes for coleslaw and always come back to this one. It's fabulous for a picnic as it is not only healthy but contains no mayo to worry about spoiling. Read More

I used 1/2 cup sugar and 1 teaspoon of stevia. It was too spicy for me with the jalapeno. My husband like the spiciness but thought it was too sweet. Was great for taking on a picnic though. Held up all day! Thanks! Read More
