I usually always like Jim Beard's recipes and this was no exception. I cut the recipe in half because I think that 2 lbs of cabbage is way too much for just 6 people. I also added more horseradish...more than twice as much...since we like it sharp and spicy. I suppose the brand that you use will determine how much you put in the recipe to get it right. I hope you've tried this by now Lennie and enjoyed it as much as we did.

Now this has some flavor! Love the horseradish in this! I have no idea why, but I added a tablespoon of dijon as well. I served this with some pulled pork sandwiches and cold beer on New Years and it was so good! Thanks, Lennie!

I gave this a shot too today, and boy! did it wake the tastebuds! I don't like sweet, bland coleslaw, so this was right up my alley! Thanks for zapping me with this. WoW!

A really good alternative to typical coleslaw! I used Splenda, and next time I will add more horseradish because it wasn't quite as spicy as we like! Thanks!

Best coleslaw ever! I used packaged shredded coleslaw mix (1lb.) Cut dressing recipe in half except for horseradish. Left horseradish at 1tbs and substituted Splenda for sugar.

Wonderful. Sometimes I add more horseradish to give it a little more tang. Very good and popular at BBQ's!

Never thought to add horseradish to cabbage before, but it was very tasty. I used a Napa cabbage, as I don't really care for the regular type. I used some of it in a roast beef wrap. Very nice. :)

I made 1 lb of this using about a fourth of a cup of light mayo (bc thats all I had) and fat free greek yogurt instead of sour cream. I just added it until the consistency was what I wanted. I used Splenda instead of sugar. I'm a horseradish nut so I was generous with it and adjusted the Splenda and mustard to compensate. It was fabulous! My mom was hesitant to eat too much until I told her how I had cut the fat and sugar. Heart healthy and full of flavor, I'm bringing it to our Christmas pot luck.
