Was looking for a recipe that used red cabbage, but was a bit disappointed with the flavors in this one. Did not have celery salt, but added ground celery seed. More mayo than necessary.

Very good flavors. I used only half the amount of dressing in proportion to the cabbage as called for, and just about half the sugar, and less carrot, because I prefer slaw more crunchy than creamy, and not much sweet. Really pretty on a plate.

I had the ingredients for the dressing when I discovered my friend had already made coleslaw for the BBQ, so I made it as a potato salad and it was divine! DD can't stop eating it. I can't wait to try it with the cabbages etc.

*Reviewed for Aussie Forum Recipe Swap August 09* THis is great coleslaw. I made the quantities as outlined in the recipe and this makes a huge party-sized bowl of yummy coleslaw. I wasn't sure about the celery salt and celery seeds....but they made a great addition. I used a gluten-free coleslaw to make this suitable to my gf diet and added in a squeeze of lemon juice. Totally loved it. Photos also being posted :)

I omitted the celery salt, seeds, salt and pepper. I added a little bit of sweet relish cause we wanted it more sweet. This is a great coleslaw. Thanks Barbry :)

This is great coleslaw! I used only white cabbage and really enjoyed the carrots. The dressing was great - not sweet and I enjoyed the dijon flavor. Thanks for posting this recipe!

ummmm I cheated! I bought the vegetables already shredded, and I also had a little diced capsicum and red onion left from another recipe I was making so I added these, (waste not want not), but followed the rest of the recipe exactly! What a wonderful coleslaw. Very creamy and wonderful flavours. I especially loved the mustard in the dressing. The family really enjoyed this recipe and I will be making it again. Thanks for a great recipe BarbryT, this family loved it.

Yum! I love cole slaw and really enjoyed this. I didn't have red cabbage(( forgot to get it at the store), so used all green. Loved the mustard in it. Thanks!

Best coleslaw recipe I have found. I leave out the red cabbage as it tends to "blled" in the leftovers.

This was a very colorful and healthy salad, although I did feel it was a bit heavy on the carrot. I made exactly as stated, and agree with Derf that the dressing was a bit of a disappointment. It may seem like a ton of mayo but it really wasn't too much for the amount of veggies. It did taste way too much like just mayo even after chilling for a couple of hours. If I can offer suggestions it would be to cut back on the mayo, add more vinegar, omit the celery salt, cut the celery seed by half, and add about 1/2 cup minced red onion or scallion (a mild tasting onion of any kind) to add a little depth and character, and a little bit of pepper to give a little bite. Otherwise I do understand how this could be a favorite just as is for many, since there are different schools of thought on cole slaw. But for those who follow the directions and still want more, I hope my suggestions are helpful. Thanks so much for posting. Made for Australia/NZ recipe swap. ~Sue
