This is so good. I didnt change anything except doing a half recipe. Even my toddler loved it. Next time I will probably drain it after it has sat overnight, there was a lot of liquid...Edit- ran out of canola oil, so I did half EVOO, and it didnt really change the flavor much. I think next time I will do just Olive oil to make it healthier. After letting it sit overnight, I drained some of the liquid and it was perfect. Definitely a hit.

Great flavor, even just a couple of hours later when I sampled. Hubby loves this in his lunch.

This is excellent. I don't like mayo in my coleslaw. I used garlic salt instead of the salt and garlic powder because I didn't have any garlic powder. I cut in 1/4 because I only had an 8 oz pkg of coleslaw veggies and was only cooking for 4.

Very Nice coleslaw! I made 2 servings of this with a half a bag of coleslaw mix, canola oil and white vinegar. I think it ends up being more like 4 servings. I selected this to make for my Hubby who has been asking for a oil and vinegar coleslaw, with no mayo. After it sat for 2 hours, we tasted it, and decided to add a little more vinegar. Other than that, it has a great flavor. I think both of us prefer more crunch to our coleslaw though, so would add the marinade cooled off next time, and would marinate it in the fridge. Made for kittencalskitchen.com tag game.

This is defintely a recipe that improves over time. When I first tasted this about 24 hours after I made it, I thought it was just OK. After another 24 hours, the cabbage seemed crisper and the flavor of the dressing was outstanding.

I made half the recipe and left out the onion, as I like it better without. We cleaned the bowl in no time, and I guess I should have made the whole recipe because it was so good everyone wanted more! I did substitute Splenda for the sugar and as always it was great!

I can't believe I didn't review this. I made this coleslaw for my husband's poker night to go along with the pulled pork. While some guys preferred the mayo-based slaw, the ones that liked vinegar based slaw LOVED this. In fact, my husband had EIGHT portions of it. Thanks Merlot!

I saw this a while back and just got the canola oil yesterday. This is delicious. It is so much lighter than the mayo based cole slaw dressing I have been making for years. The only changes I made were using splenda in lieu of sugar and adding 3 teaspoons of celery seed. This mixes really well and comes together very quickly. Thanks, Merlot, for another great recipe.

This cole slaw was wonderful! The only change I made was to use Splenda to replace the sugar. I had half a cabbage in the fridge so this was an excellent way to use it up. Thanks for posting this terrific recipe, Merlot! You can bet it will be made often in this house! ;)
