I wanted a lighter side to go with dinner and thought this would be nice and refreshing. I did like the added flavors and textures of the oranges and pineapple but found the ginger to be overpowering. DH liked it but I couldn't eat mine. Not too much mayo in this, which is good for me since I don't like the stuff. I used black pepper and it was fine.

Very good. Made this for a Luau Pool Party and it was well received. Also a nice alternative to the traditional coleslaw we are used to.

We did not care for this. It was a strang combination of flavors... we thought it should be sweter so after trying it as recommended I added 1/2 cup of Splenda and let it sit for a couple hours. We still did not care for it.

This was really good. My husband who doesn't care for coleslaw or mayo actually liked it! :) I used coleslaw mix with carrots which made prep easy. I made half a recipe and it made about 4 servings as a side dish.

This has great texture but we just didn't like the nutmeg and ginger with the mayo at all. We would need to change it quite a bit to make it again. Guess we're just stuck on regular cole slaw.

I made this for my daughter's family (she does not usually like coleslaw) and for friends one night with bbq'd pork ribs. Very quick to make also. Everyone loved it!! Will be served again!! Thanks for the posting.

I made this for last night's Mid-winter Luau. My friend's three 20-something sons asked her to ask me for this recipe as did their girlfriends. This was a huge success. Thank you for posting it!

This is a great refreshing cole slaw. The ginger (I used fresh) and nutmeg go so well with the sweetness of the pineapple and mandarin oranges. I'm tempted to add some coconut to this salad, too. I'll be making this again, especially for summer picnics. Thanx for sharing.
