Wow, I was blown away with the great taste here and this is now my go-to creamy slaw recipe. I like using fresh lemon juice and white wine vinegar. It's definitely lemony in a great way! Easily can be tweaked for your own taste. I shred my own cabbage and sometimes use celery salt for the salt component, if no celery seeds are on hand. For those concerned with onion, you can prep them to remove the harshness. Soak chopped onions for 10-20 minutes in ice cold water, drain and use. Or flash them in hot water. (For flashing, put chopped onions briefly in near boiling water for 10-30 seconds, then rinse and strain with very cold water til they aren't warm. This will fix the problem and they'll still be like fresh onions in the salad without the bite or aftertaste.) I never put fresh chopped raw onions in anything anymore without this treatment, try it. I've used the whites and greens of scallions in this recipe, too, with very good results.
What a great low-carb recipe that doesn't taste low-carb! I made this yesterday with a couple changes. I used less Splenda - about 1/4 cup and used apple cider vinegar instead of white vinegar. I think the longer this dish chills the better it tastes. The rest of my family who aren't carb restricted loved the taste too - I got lots of compliments. I think next time I will use even less Splenda and maybe more spices, by just altering the sweet and spicy, you can really customize this one to your tastes.
