"Pretty and delicious, too! The combination of the purple cabbage (a little sweeter than the green) and the apples is awesome. The dressing is my Grandma's recipe. You will be sure to impress your guests!"

1/2 medium head
red cabbage, finely shredded
finely minced white onion
Fuji apples, peeled, cored and finely diced
Liked this salad very much. I did add a little bit of vinegar to give it a zing. Also I substituted half the mayo with plain yogurt to lower the fat content. My family liked it and didn't notice the yogurt. I liked the color, it makes an attractive salad.
Good but I had to make alot of adjustments. I used half cup mayo and half cup plain yogurt. I used a whole head of cabbage and added 2 tbsp of apple cider vinegar.
Made this recipe several times and keeps coming up a winner. To keep it new with old guests, I added a tablespoon of fresh ground ginger. Surprisingly, nobody could name the taste, but loved the enhanced flavor. We will keep making this one.
The dressing for this coleslaw is the best! It provides the perfect amount of tartness--something I could never achieve using pickle juice. I made the slaw using green cabbage and only one apple and it was great.
I was worried about serving this at a BBQ since it was a little different and had no reviews at the time I made it. I had nothing to worry about though. It got rave reviews from my guests. I enjoyed it as well. I did, however, leave out the onion & added some grated carrot. I am not a fan of raw onion. It still turned out great...and the flavor was good. I may try substituting yogurt next time, like the previous reviewer. Thank you for the recipe.
Excellent recipe. Made it for a New Years Eve party and had rave reviews. Like others have said, this slaw was enjoyed by cole slaw fans in addition to those who don't normally like slaw. I made this exactly by the recipe and wouldn't change a thing. There is definitely more prep time than a jar of Marzetti's and a bag of cabbage but it's well worth the time and effort for something different and very tasty that will probably become one of your favorite way to make slaw.
This was really a hit with my family. Gave the recipe to my Mother and she uses it often for family gatherings.
Amazing. Not even a coleslaw fan, and I love it.
