With a couple tweeks, this was delicious. I used one large lemon, not three. I used 1/3 cup mayo not one - I'm not a big mayo eater. I did use red cabbage, white cabbage and carrot as suggested, all packaged. I could not stop eating it. Fabulous. Do NOT leave out those toasted pecans!
MEH! At best. The recipe is OK but super bland. OK if you want to feel good about eating the part of the broccoli that is normally reserved for feed then OK but do yourself a favor. Stick with cabbage slaw. This recipe is OK for beginners but slaw is easy so reduce the mayo (or if you like your slaw sweet use a commercial slaw dressing we found the best is Marie's Coleslaw Dressing, add a couple of tablespoons of creamy horseradish, a large chopped onion (red, white or yellow), a couple of chopped firm tomatoes and get a couple of bags of cabbage slaw mix or save a few bucks and chop up a a large head of cabbage. If you are feeling fancy add some pecans. Ultimately we mix a bag of the finely shredded cabbage with a small head of cabbage cut into larger strips.
I made the recipe and cole slow this ain’t. It tasted like Mayo, it was too rich. We will stick with the classic slaw recipes we’ve been using every summer.
Easy to make and delicious!
And the reviewer who thinks this deserves one star because there is no nutritional information offered should have their post removed. Crazy idiot.
I'm serious about the 5-Star rating, pecans help everything, and the bacon idea is a good one too. But, I would be remiss if I failed to second the motion of the reviewer that spoke up about an earlier reviewer's complaint regarding an absence of nutritional information.
PUL-EEEASE! The recipe accompanied a collection of hearty Game-Day serving ideas. Dieting isn't really on anyone's radar while they are watching a game. Besides, if she doesn't already know the caloric value of a cup of mayo, she doesn't have any business whining about the recipe's author neglecting to educate her. She could always just add a few miles to her pre-game workout (because I'm sure she would have one).
Anonymous: So let me get this straight. You clearly rated a recipe without trying it because of your nutritional information fetish. Figure it out! It's not rocket science. Sheesh! Since I have to rate it in order to comment, I'm giving it 5 stars to offset yours.
Nutritional information? All recipes should include nutritional information! One star for lack of information.
