Even those in my family who did not like coleslaw ate this recipe. Light and tasty!

This is the coleslaw recipe I have been searching for! It's perfect. I used white wine vinegar instead of the white balsamic.

This is excellent. I threw it together for a casual meal with cracked crab and was surprised to hear from my spouse and our guest how great they thought it was. They could not stop raving about it. Made it as written--I think the cabbage amount was perfect. Plenty of dressing on it. Nice to have a salad that holds well--was great for lunch the next day.

This is a good, tasty side dish. I stayed close to the recipe, but veered by using that broccoli coleslaw (12 oz. bag) and white wine vinegar...oh, and also Cameo apples instead of Romas, and regular raisins instead of golden (so I guess I didn't stay too close to the recipe). I don't think that the coleslaw overpowers the dressing (as per other comments). It is also tasty using the white wine vinegar. The dish was a good side for our steak dinner, and was fine to be made a day beforehand (the apples stayed very fresh).

This is good and my husband and son ate it with burgers, so it fulfills my requirement of working some veggies into a meaty meal! I gave it three stars from personal preference, as I prefer a more tart, vinegary coleslaw (live in NC and are spoiled by the tart, tangy, peppery slaws at our BBQ joints!) But I love mixing the dried and fresh fruits in for extra nutrition - and if the creamy, traditional dressing gets the meat-eaters to eat their veggies, works for me!

Easy and good side

I enjoyed this...I probably would have given it 3 stars but since I didn't follow the recipe exactly and it came out tasty. I used fat free vanilla yogurt in place of sour cream, dark raisins instead of golden, 3 cups shredded cabbage, 2.5 cups match stick carrots. Will make again!

Rated 3 stars for the base recipe, because when I first made it, it was blah and I was really bummed to be taking it to a friend's place. BUT after consulting with my boyfriend, who is a way better cook than I, we figured out a good altered version: bump up the vinegar to about 1.5x what's listed, slice the apples matchstick style but a little fatter and use more (also about 1.5x listed--we were altering a halved version anyway), go a little heavier on the golden raisins, and add 4 drops of sriracha/ "rooster sauce" (for the 8 serving recipe, only 2 for the 4 servings we made). Adding extra apples and vinegar really freshened it up a lot and the sriracha didn't really add spice so much as a more complex flavor that had previously been missing.

I have been making this for years & it is delicious. Anyone who eats it asks for the recipe. The only change I made was adding chopped walnuts.

After making it according to recipe, i realized I was not going to be happy with it and made the changes according to "Alphabetizing". That helped quite a bit but I would stick with Cooking Lights poppy seed slaw dressing or Cat Cora's slaw dressing recipe instead.
