I really like this ~ light and tasty. I used key lime honey, which gave this a sweet, citrusy flavor. I had to make my own coleslaw as I didn't have any of the mix, but I had cabbage and carrots! I used a yellow delicious apple in this. Easy to put together, and I like that it doesn't have mayo. Thanks for posting iewe ~ made for ZWT6 ~ SCANDANAVIA Region and the Queens of Quisine!

This is a nice twist to a standard coleslaw with mayo. I like the citrus taste that comes through with the lemon juice...found it very refreshing & light tasting. I used a tart granny smith apple in it and skipped on the green bell pepper this time. I enjoyed it but the teens had mixed feelings on it with them all saying it was a bit too tart for them - so next time I think I'll use a milder apple and maybe fresh squeezed lemon juice and a dash more honey. Overall it is a nice change and would be great for BBQs and outdoor events as without the mayo it is safe to keep out! Made during my travels in ZWT6. Thanks for sharing!

For me there it was too oily but for DH he didn't like apples in it. Maybe he would have prefered it shredded than diced. Thanks iewe :) Made for ZWT9

I didn't fine dice the ingredients but rather left them a bit on the chunky side. We loved this salad. The dressing had just a touch of sweetness and complemented the tart apple. Made for the Soup-A-Stars ZWT9

Sorry but really thought we would like this more than we did. Both DH who liked it much better than I did thought it came up a little short. As the coleslaw mix I had bought was rather large and chunky I chopped the apple and bell pepper a little chunkier than a fine dice other than that no changes made. Thanks for the post.
