Very simple, yet delicious. I used 1/2 t. dry mustard in lieu of prepared mustard and it worked as well.

My mother is of Amish descent & made a similar slaw. But, she used water in place of the oil. It was much better that way. The oily taste just isn't right.

Nice flavor, but a bit too oily for me. Served it at a family gathering & people didn't really take any.

Great with a couple of tweaks. Reduce oil to 1/3 cup and pour the HOT dressing over the vegis and then chill for a crisper result. Very good and the Splenda worked great with this! Thanks for sharing!

It was a very good recipe. The only change I made was that I used half the amount of splenda.

\The receipe is solid, but waaay too sweet for me. Also, the oil is a bit much. All that said, the taste (when adjusted) is great. Thank you.

I made a half batch. I used Xylitol granules (natural sweetener)- only half a teaspoon- instead of the Splenda and the dry mustard... and only 1/4 cup of Extra Virgin Cold-pressed olive oil and still found the slaw too oily. But otherwise this was a VERY nice slaw. I also used apple cider vinegar with the mother and added a little bit of chopped mint- about half a teaspoon. I think it would be great with wine vinegar, teriyaki sauce and a broccoli slaw mix, too, with some sliced almonds chicken and sesame seeds for texture and proteins.
