Yummy slaw. I used both red and green cabbage, and followed the rest of the recipe. The pickle and caraway seeds are lovely additions, and the sugar amount was perfect for our tastes. I skipped the salting process. This would be great in a sandwich. Thanks for posting.

Creamy and tangy! I loved the caraway seeds! The amounts of pickles and caraway may seem like a lot, but they kind of disappear out of site when you mix this up; you can't see them really well, but the flavor is there. I used preshredded cabbage/carrot mix to save on prep time. Thanx for a great slaw!

Yummm! I just made it and couldn't help taking a quick taste... perfect amount of sweet vs. tangy, caraway adds a nice touch (I was hesitant, but it works!), pickle also comes through nice, can't wait to have it tomorrow! Thanks.
