This is now our favourite coleslaw recipe, even the kids like it! I left out the onions and used the dressing ingredients as specified with 1/8 tsp. salt and pepper, but with 1/2 head of cabbage. Great recipe, thanks for sharing!!!

I did half the recipe. I put 1 carrot, 1 golden delicious apple, no celery seeds, no onion. Maybe next time I'll double the sauce. It's delicious :)

This was great, islandgirl. Only change I made was to add my secret ingredient, a few dried cranberries and lemon juice rather than vinegar.

Love it. Only instead of vinegar and sugar, I use orange juice. I am trying to eat healthier these days, and find that OJ works quite well where sugar and vinegar are used in these type of recipes. It has the acidity and sweetness of both, and is healthier for you!

I made my Cole Slaw like this before and loved it. Another way I make it and have never seen any like it posted on a recipe web site is instead of apples add one can of Leisure Sweet Baby Peas that are drained and use red onion, cabbage and carrots with the sweet dressing. It is like a crunchy Pea Salad it is good.

This recipe is now a family favorite - all other coleslaw recipes have been discarded! I omitted the celery seed, doubled the dressing and used low-fat mayonnaise and the taste is FABULOUS!

This was a great cole slaw. I used a bag of ready made cole slaw and I used a sugar substitute and fat free mayonnaise in the dressing as I am diabetic. We have a salad with every meal and hubby usually takes just a bit but tonight he had seconds and then thirds of this delicious cole slaw. Thanks for a great recipe!!!

Sometimes my husband is not too thrilled with coleslaw, but he and I both loved this recipe.

This was a wonderful coleslaw and a change from my own recipe. I really enjoyed the dressing, it had just the perfect balance of sweetness, and the apples really brought out a nice flavor. Great recipe, I really enjoyed this!....Kittencal:)
