"I used one bag of coleslaw mix. I did omit the pecans and substituted a freshly cooked crown of broccoli, broken into florets. I'd finely cut the cooked florets. This salad was delicious and very easy to prepare!

"Very delicious- I am not a fan of Granny Smith green apples so I substituted Gala and my family took second and third servings."
