"I've been trying to create a coleslaw dressing with the lowest possible fat intake. This is as low as I could go without taking away the flavor. It's a family favorite and we use it with all kinds of meals, in wraps, in sandwiches, with burgers, and as a side during BBQs."

While I love the idea of a lower-fat coleslaw...this recipe is a good base for add on's. The recipe was easy to follow, quick to put together. But where I found lacking, is spice. While it had a zip, it didn't have that flavor I traditionally love in coleslaws. You will have to build with your own selections of spices to get it to the level of pizzazz. I needed black pepper, celery seed and celery salt. As written, again a good base for lower-fat, just needs more umph.
I understand most cole slaw recipes call for some type of vinegar, but to my husband and I, it tasted like vinegar. I did add your typical celery seed and celery salt, as I don't think a cole slaw recipe should be without it. We just couldn't get past the vinegar taste in this one. Maybe only 1 tbsp. of apple cider vinegar would be enough. Two tbsps. of 2 different vinegars is just way too much. So glad this wasn't served to friends or family. Had to add a little mustard to kill the strong vinegar taste. This recipe, to us, needs some tweaking.
This was good for a lower fat, healthier option. I didn't add the milk (didn't have any), but still coated the cabbage lightly. I agree with other reviewers that you need to add some other seasonings; I added celery seed and pepper for more flavour.
Seemed like way too much salt to me. It was good otherwise and I love a low fat option. I'd definitely make it again, just with way less salt.
Very dry if made exactly step by step, we added four more tablespoons of mayo (low fat) and it was moist then with an extra sprinkle of sugar to cut the tartness, but otherwise great
I followed this recipe but added 2 tablespoons of dill relish (will add more next time) and used a store bought bag of broccoli slaw instead of cabbage. This was great and even my husband liked it. I think some celery seed might make it pop. This is a great base recipe to experiment on and customize.
really awesome! I didn't have lemon juice, but it turned out amazing. Love how the flavors mix with the cabbage!
