I really enjoyed this coleslaw, and it is perfect for low-carb diets. I only used 5 or 6 packets of Splenda, and found it to be just the right amount of sweetness (for my taste). Next time, I might add a little less of the celery seed, as I thought it was a wee bit overpowering. But this is a very good, delightfully different coleslaw recipe. Thank you! ~Manda UPDATE: I'm not sure if I'm allowed to do this or not, but I'm gonna do it anyway;) I rated this recipe with 4 stars on the first day I made it. However, 2 days after making it I ate some and it definitely deserves a 5 star, and mum agrees!! Just proves that some things do get better with time!! I will definitely be making this again, and also sharing it with my aunt who is on a low-carb diet. I'm sure she will love it. Thank you, Bergy!! ~Manda

This was a nice change from the usual mayo type coleslaw. There is no way it will last 7 days though.We are all taking it to work for lunch tomorrow. I followed the suggestion of a previous reviewer and just added 6 pkg of splenda and it turned out great.Thanks for posting this great recipe Bergy.

I made this for DH, who is a big fan of slaw. His only complaint was that it was a little dry. So I made a second batch of the dressing and added it. Problem solved. He really enjoys it now. Thanks!
