Zucchini Slaw

In Hickory, North Carolina, Nadeen Shrewsberry wouldn't think of squandering squash. "A friend gave me the recipe for this best-of-the-season slaw," she offers. "If you like the light taste of zucchini in a simple salad, you're sure to ask for a second helping of this one."

    I had no carrots, so used finely-diced red peppers instead. I thought the salad was okay, but hubby disagreed. I think a more flavourful dressing might have won him over.

    This was okay but not great. It lacked flavor but I did like the texture and it's a different way to have zucchini. I might try it again but try a different dressing since this dressing was not very flavorful.

    Very good. I especially like the dressing. I've used it on other slaw recipes as well.

    I was looking for some recipes for the zucchini I had gotten. I saw this recipe and it sounded good. I made it for church picnic and I liked it and others at the picnic said they liked it also. I'd make it again. Even though a previous reviewer said thet did not like the recipe.

    I was looking for some type of recipe to use for the zucchini I had gotten. Saw this recipe- it sounded good - even though a previous reviewer said they did not like the recipe. I made it for a church picnic and liked it and others at the picnic said they liked it also - will make it again.

    I am a zucchini lover! I eat it in anything and love it plain, raw, however. But I have to say this is not very tasty at all. In fact, no one in family enjoyed this recipe at all. I will never make this again!!
