Broccoli Slaw with Lemon Dressing

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

    Unfortunately, neither my husband nor I liked this salad. He felt the apple, lemon and pepper flavors dominated too much, while I felt that, even after resting for an hour, the broccoli stems were just too tough. It may just be personal preference.

    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.

    This is REALLY good and easy, too! I used low fat sour cream and low fat mayo but you NEVER would have been able to tell! Lemony good--thanks for the recipe!

    This is delicious. The last few times I have made this I added shredded chicken breast so it would be a one dish meal. Like the contributor said it is better after sitting for a while. It's also very versatile, once I swapped out the apple for pineapple tidbits and added some toasted sesame seeds for an Asian flair. However it doesn't make 10 servings, at least not in our house.

    This was good and the bagged mix made it really simple. I didn't have any mustard so I left it out, but I think it would have added a bit of spice to counter the sweetness. I also increased the mayo and decreased the sour cream slightly.

    This was a good accompaniment to our pulled pork sandwiches.
