Easy and refreshing marinated salad reminiscent of the salad from the Weequahic Diner in Newark, New Jersey. A family favorite that can be made days in advance!

Interesting use of vegetables but rather bland. I made mine ahead for a BBQ but found that the liquid from the marinating vegetables really watered down the dressing so it hardly had any taste. I then doubled the dressing amounts added 1/2 teaspoon celery seed and black pepper and added a bit more cabbage. It was better but I can't say it has become a favourite. If I give it a second chance I think I'll use red onions to add to the colour of the dish (its appearance was better than its taste). Read More

I love this recipe! I had green yellow & red pepper on hand so I added all three. Since I am not a fan of raw onions I also cut this down to 1/3 c. I also used olive oil in the recipe instead of vegetable oil. I let this sit for 24 hours. Next time I will double the recipe. Thanks for the recipe. Read More

I thought this was a tasty salad and a good alternative to the same old coleslaw that I always make. Before eating I let the salad sit for about six hours and thought the flavor was great. The onion was way too overpowering however even though I only used one large yellow onion. The next day all of the flavors had mellowed out including the onion but I found that it was almost too bland and a little bit watery. I did like it enough to make again though. Read More

actually i didn't find this to be bland at all. i substituted red wine vinegar (that was all i had) and cut the amounts down as i only needed about half this recipe but my husband and i really loved it. used it as a topping for grilled brats. great recipe.:) Read More

Great substitute for the usual salad. I've followed the exact recipe used bag mix cole slaw instead and even done a spinach version. Very nice and refreshing for summer! Read More

Nice! It's the perfect complement to a sandwich and a pickle spear. The only reason this gets 4 stars instead of 5 is that it could use a pinch of celery seed. Not a lot. Just a tiny bit to perk up the flavors. Read More

Something new and tasty...I like it! I only used part of an onion though as I didn't want it's flavor to overpower the salad as other's have mentioned. Read More
