Our family absolutely loves broccoli, so I'm so happy there's finally a slaw mix in stores that uses broccoli stems. I like this slaw best after 20 minutes or so to allow the flavors to meld. —Donna Marie Ryan, Topsfield, Massachusetts

"I'm not sure what I did wrong but this was barely edible. The lemon was just way too overpowering. I skipped the apple but added in some sugar to counteract the lemon. I wound up putting a lot of sugar in, but despite this, it was just way to much. I probably won't make this recipe again."

"The lemon flavor makes this salad so bright and refreshing! Everyone loved it at our work potluck. I only used 1 very large red apple, it was plenty."

"Good slaw. I left out the apples due to an allergy."

"I used fresh squeezed lemon. It was a bit too lemony but easily adjusted with sugar. Very tasty."
