    I really enjoyed this coleslaw, and it is perfect for low-carb diets. I only used 5 or 6 packets of Splenda, and found it to be just the right amount of sweetness (for my taste). Next time, I might add a little less of the celery seed, as I thought it was a wee bit overpowering. But this is a very good, delightfully different coleslaw recipe. Thank you! ~Manda UPDATE: I'm not sure if I'm allowed to do this or not, but I'm gonna do it anyway;) I rated this recipe with 4 stars on the first day I made it. However, 2 days after making it I ate some and it definitely deserves a 5 star, and mum agrees!! Just proves that some things do get better with time!! I will definitely be making this again, and also sharing it with my aunt who is on a low-carb diet. I'm sure she will love it. Thank you, Bergy!! ~Manda

    This was a nice change from the usual mayo type coleslaw. There is no way it will last 7 days though.We are all taking it to work for lunch tomorrow. I followed the suggestion of a previous reviewer and just added 6 pkg of splenda and it turned out great.Thanks for posting this great recipe Bergy.

    I made this for DH, who is a big fan of slaw. His only complaint was that it was a little dry. So I made a second batch of the dressing and added it. Problem solved. He really enjoys it now. Thanks!

    i love coleslaw, but hate mayonnaise recipes! i searched for a good dressing that was vinaigrette style, and man did this hit the spot! it was so easy to make and absolutely delicious! i left out the horseradish cream simply because we didn't have any and it still turned out absolutely delicious! oh, i also forgot to mention that i only added two packets of splenda out of personal preference, and it was really sweet with only that amount!

    Yummilicious! I love that this doesn't require mayo. It couldn't be healthier, and it's a great way to get in my veggies. I used a prepackaged coleslaw mix instead of shredding my own cabbage, and 3 packets of Splenda. Next time I might double the horseradish, but it's a wonderful dish that I will certainly make again.


On January 10 2010 I will celebrate 9 years of Life with Zaar. I can't imagine being without it! It has become part of my daily routine. I feel very privileged to be one of the hosts on the Photo Forum. Taking photos of my culinary efforts is a full time hobby and I love it. My friends all know what to expect when they come to dinner "Are you finished taking pictures?" or "Did you get a photo of so & so?" I never let them wait too long and the food is NEVER cold! I now have over 6000 photos on Zaar - some fairly good and some definitely not so good. I am happy to say that practice does help. My roots are in Vancouver BC Canada - a very beautiful city that holds many wonderful memories for me. In 1990, I decided that for my retirement years I may want to settle in a smaller community and found a slice of heaven in the North Okanagan B.C. I love living here but every once in a while I miss the bright city lights, the Broadway shows and some of the small wonderful ethnic restaurants that Vancouver abounds in. That is easily resolved. I just take a trip to the coast, visit with friends for a weekend see a show and feast on Dim Sum or other specialty foods. I am getting a bit long in the tooth but was a very adventurous person. I have river rafted Hell's Gate on the Fraser river, been up in a glider over Hawaii (no not a Hang Glider!), gone hot air ballooning in the Napa Valley & the Fraser Valley, driven dune buggies on the dunes in Oregon, Para sailing in Mexico and tried many other adventurous, challenging, fun things. I have yet to try bungee jumping or sky diving. I may do them yet. I love to travel and experience other cultures. Mexco has been a favorite haunt. I have visited that lovely country many many times. Australia is another favorite as is England! In the past 16 months I have taken off 61 pounds and feel wonderful. I am off all medications and all systems are GO! In years I may be 79 but in spirit I am still in my forties. We are only as old as we allow ourselves to feel. Always think positive. Do something a bit challenging every day & always do something silly every day. Be a kid again! Laugh every day - it is internal jogging.
