If you've been searching for the perfect coleslaw, give this one a try! It has a terrific crunch, and the simple dressing is sweet and tangy all in one. This is a great way to get your family to eat cabbage. We love it. -Patricia Staudt, Marble Rock, Iowa

"I recall preparing this recipe when it first came out in Taste of Home! I did adjust this recipe by using 2 celery ribs, finely chopped, 1 head of green cabbage, shredded, 2 large carrots, shredded, 1 small onion, finely chopped, 1 green pepper, finely chopped. For dressing, I combined the following ingredients: 1 tsp. salt, 1/4 cup sugar, 1 tsp. poppy seeds, 2 to 3 Tbsp. apple cider vinegar, 1/4 to 1/2 cup canola or vegetable oil, 1 tsp. salt and 1/4 to 1/2 tsp. ground black pepper. I enjoy this sweet and sour flavor of this coleslaw! It reminded me of the "health salad" which was sold in supermarkets a long time ago! delowenstein"

"I've made this often with green cabbage, but, with red cabbage it is something special...."

"I used apple cider vinegar and olive oil. I have made several times and we like it. Also brought to church ladies meeting and had many requests for the recipe."

"very clean taste. I made it as directed, but added 1 Tablespoon of miracle whip for an extra touch of tang. BIG hit with family & friends."
