I made this when visiting family and it was a big hit. I couldn't find straight raspberry vinegar so I bought raspberry basalmic vinegar and it seemed to work just fine. Serve the salad with Halibut Florentine which was fantastic. Here's the recipe link: http://www.food.com/recipe/halibut-florentine-216171. I also posted your recipe on a Foodies on Facebook group I belong to and have had positive reponses to it. I linked it back to here so you would get the credit. Thanks for posting this.
We really enjoyed this tasty and refreshing coleslaw. Made exactly as written and wouldn't change a thing. I did use both the optional ingredients and so glad that I did; they added a lovely natural sweetness . The sauce was creamy and flavorful but not overpowering, adding just the right amount of creaminess. All the different ingredients enhanced this slaw without competing with one another, creating a memorable dish, with lovely contrasting flavors and textures. Thank you so much for sharing Susie, we will be enjoying this often during the hot months to come. Made for Spring Pac 2014.
This coleslaw is different from the other I made but it's so yummy. It was great with the dried cranberries, raisins and coconut. Thanks Susie :) Made for PAC Fall 2011
This is a really pretty salad, although, looking at the photos from others, mine was not quite as pretty as some. I highly recommend using the raspberry vinegar - it really added a bright fresh flavor to the dressing. My raisins were kind of hard and old, but after sitting in the salad a while they did absorb some moisture and soften up. I think a nice addition to this salad would be some chopped nuts, such as pecans or walnuts. I didn't have any coconut, so left that out. I don't think it hurt the salad at all, but not sure about that. This would certainly be a great colesalw for a special dinner. The grapes and dried apricots really were wonderful and "made" the salad, in my opinion. I wouldn't say they were optional.
I really, really, really loved this coleslaw. I thought might be overly sweet, but it wasnt. I didnt use the dried apricots but other than that, mixed the slaw per directions. We will definitely be having this one again! Made for ZWT4.
l made this to go with Pulled Pork sandwiches for New Year's Eve. Great! I omitted the carrot b/c I used a bagged, shredded Coleslaw mix that already had some carrots. Everyone loved the coleslaw!
This was delicious, and we all really liked it. It made quite a bit, so we had more for lunch the next day. The dressing really spruced up the coleslaw nicely without overpowering it. I didn't include the flaked coconut, since I didnt' have any on hand. But I'll definitely make this again, and will not change a thing. Thanks, Susie D.
this was very good. i left out the apricot and green onion as i didn't have any. i used a 16oz bag of prepared coleslaw mix and it worked out perfectly. thanks for sharing!
I made this for our dinner tonight. This is something completely different then what I normally make. I did not add the grapes or apricots but followed recipe otherwise. We really liked this, DD and I couldnt' stop eating this. Great flavor combo. Thank you for sharing this recipe with us.
Thanks for this, I've made it about four times in the past five weeks. I put some celery and roasted sunflower seeds in it as well... doesn't need the celery, but the sunflower seeds are a nice touch. thanks again...
