I am Jayme. I've done a little playing around with this recipe since submitting it, and wanted to pass along some of the things I've done. First, for a low calorie version, you can use 1/4 brown sugar baking splenda instead of 1/2 cup brown sugar, and use fat free mayonnaise instead of regular. About a month ago, I was playing around with this recipe and added 1 cup of craisins, 2 diced braeburn apples, and 2 broiled and diced chicken breasts. I took it for Mother's Day and everyone loved it, and although I still love the original recipe to go with a simple dinner of burgers, hot dogs, or sloppy joes, the updated version is my new favorite salad to take for pot lucks and to serve with pork chops.

It was very quick and easy and it makes ALOT of cole Slaw. I used a few bags of the pre-shredded cabbage, both green and red. I also added some shredded carrots for more color. I may cut down on the apple cider vinegar next time and add a bit more mayo or even a touch of sour cream or yogurt to be a little more creamy. A good standard- thanks!

This came out really good! I was a little leary, as it's completely different from the way I normally make cole slaw, but I went ahead anyway and I'm glad I did. It is sweet, but in a good way. The only change I made was to use a bag of pre-shredded cabbage/carrots instead of shredding my own cabbage. I will definitely make this again!

Some recipes have so many things added to give you bells and whistles it's difficult to remember what you're eating. This recipe is simple, few ingredients and anything but boring. Truly a great coleslaw and one that goes well with everything from Carolina pulled pork to burgers and dogs off the grill. This is a keeper! Thanks for a great recipe.

This is a very simple cole slaw. I am using to top NC style pulled pork bbq sandwiches and needed a slaw to whip up on my lunch break from work. It has the perfect taste and texture for what I am using it for. At first, the color kind of set me back (I'm from VA, cole slaw is white there), but it will go well with the vinegary bbq. I followed another reviewers advice, used a bag of the preshredded cabbage and halved the recipe. Perfect. I added maybe another tablespoon of mayo to thicken it up a little, but other than that the flavor is great. It will be amazing once it's chilled. For the record, anytime I make a salad (potato, macaroni, pasta, slaw) it always needs to chill for awhile. If anyone is trying this recipe without chilling it first and giving it a bad review, then try it again and let it sit for awhile. The flavors need to blend.

add finely chopped celery (omit celery seed if too much of a good thing) and half a green pepper for an even better recipe!

This was good. Very good. It was one of many I tried my hand at making one evening for a fish fry. It was the closest to what you come to think of as a cole slaw.

Never having made "homemade" coleslaw before, I was asked to make some for a funeral. I used this recipe except for the slaw I added carrots, onions & green pepper. I asked everyone for their honest opinion & it got rave reviews! Thanks!
