We really enjoyed this flavorful slaw. It was chocked full of vegetables and had great flavor. I didn't read the directions correctly and grated the cabbage, didn't hurt the flavor in anyway, although it did make the dish resemble chinese fried rice. I marinated the slaw for 8 hours in the fridge, it was awesome, had great flavor and was very refreshing. Thank you Susie for sharing a recipe that we will enjoy again. Made for Spring Pac 2014.
This recipe seemed like a nice healthy option to make. I was thinking when I was making it that it might be good with shredded chicken in it. I made it with part Chinese cabbage and part red cabbage which I chopped. I shredded the carrots and zucchini and fine chopped the red onion. I used toasted sesame seeds. Unfortunately, the orange zest overpowered the whole thing making it taste like cleaner to us. I think just the orange juice would have worked or lime juice and zest would have been better. It also needed salt or fish sauce in it. So sorry it didn't work out to our tastes.
Made this as I don't like the mayo dressings much, I did cut down on the onion as it tends to repeat on me. I enjoyed this slaw it was a refreshing change and as others mentioned better after marinating for awhile. Will make again.
Great slaw! I used a food processor to slice/chop all the veggies but forgot the cilantro. Easy and went wonderful with grilled fish. Thanks for sharing!
We didn't care for this slaw as much as I thought we would. The dressing was very bland even after chilling overnight. I'll stick with the mayo based dressings. Good luck in the contest.
We do enjoy slaw, & your recipe for it is especially nice! I especially liked the citrus dressing & another time might even add a bit of orange zest! Made it in the morning & it wasn't until mid-afternoon that we had some on top of burgers ~ Totally delightful! Thanks for this wonderful creation!
This is a very pretty slaw that has a slight Asian flavor and a very refreshing change from most slaws. I made this as written and taste tested after 30 minutes thinking it was ok but let chill another 30 minutes which really helped bring the flavors to there peek and will make sure when making this in the future to chill at least an hour before serving. Thanks for the post and good luck in the contest.
