MY REVIEW
Reviewed Nov. 7, 2013

Amazing taste. Great change to the basic coleslaw. I saved this to my favorites. I didn't have miracle whip so I used mayo. I didn't have celery . So I added 1/2 of celery salt instead of plain salt. I also sliced up carrots . Yummy, yummy!! Will be making this again

This salad is so refreshing! I used Truvia in place of sugar and turned out great. It is hard to find diabetic friendly recipes that our whole family likes. This is a keeper.

This is terrific! The textures are very appealing and the dressing is one of the best I've ever made. My new "GoTo" Coleslaw.

My family loved this recipe. I omitted green pepper and added red pepper. I made as written once, but since then have added shrimp and used Mayo. I will take to family reunion potluck. I may try some of the other variations described here.
