Reviews forCrunchy Cool Coleslaw
"Just 2 of us, so I halved the recipe but used the full amount of dressing. I didn’t have peanuts on hand, so I used slivered almonds for crunch. Next time I will try cashews. We enjoyed this variation from our usual creamy cole slaw. I will be making this again."
"I halved the receipe, including the dressing. Everyone said it tasted really good, but was dry and needed more dressing. Next time I will double the dressing. Very light and tasty!"
"I only needed to serve 8 people so I halved the recipe. I needed the full amount of dressing however. The recipe amount was skimpy even for one bag of coleslaw. I omitted the carrots as the mix I had contained carrots. Substituting caraway seed might be an option also. Generally it was tasty and the peanuts were a nice addition."
