Red Cabbage Slaw Reviews

  • Love this receive Simple, quick and I was enjoying "before it chilled" so I know it will be great later I did make one change Because I have to avoid soy, I do not use mayonnaise (have not found one without soy) so I used plain Dannon yogurt Taste great to me

  • Love Red cabbage and was so glad to find this Made it last night and refrigerated overnight stirring occasionally. I didnt realize until writing this review, that I forgot to add the cranberries (oops); but will next time. We enjoyed the walnuts in this. Thanks for a wonderful side dish with pork sandwiches. This is a keeper, AuntE

  • GREAT I added a spritz of lemon juice and used Grape seed oil "Vegenaise" instead of mayo, otherwise followed the recipe as is, and yummy My first slaw and an absolute keeper

  • Im so glad I came across this recipe... To say its delicious is an understatement. I used light salad dressing so since its sweet, I didnt have to use the extra sugar. I did add a squeeze of lemon and wow, my husband ate the heck out of it This slaw is better after it sits a while so make it the night before... Im gonna try this slaw in a fish or shrimp taco.... I cant wait

  • I didnt have carrots but I did have apples and it worked for me Also, I didnt have cranberries, but I did have raisins and that too worked for me.

  • I am getting ready to make this slaw for the second time. Now that Ive made it according to the recipe, I will add a little more mayo and a lot more vinegar. (The first go-around wasnt quite tangy enough for us). I will also leave out the sugar. I love the addition of the cranberries and walnuts. This slaw was better after sitting in the fridge a couple of better and better with time.

  • Oh my goodness I had to force myself to quit eating this and I just made it (and havent even added the walnuts yet) I knew I was going to like this recipe, but I love it I was being greedy, so, I used about 2/3 cup mayo, 3 tbsp. vinegar, 1 tbsp. sugar and 2/3-3/4 cup cranberries, plus lots of pepper. Yum Yum If I can stay out of it, Ill add the nuts tomorrow, so they dont get soft in the frig overnight. I hope I didnt mess it up by adding too much dressing, esp. after it sits, lol, but it sure tastes good right now Thank you so much for posting this recipe, AuntE

  • Easy, excellent and mostly good-for-you ingredients, too Tastes even better after a few days. I prefer more tangy than sweet so its either more apple cider vinegar or less sugar...easy fix. Have never made a red cabbage slaw, but I think I prefer this over green Thanks AuntE

  • For such a simple recipe it was fabulous. I used raisins and pecans (toasted), because that was what I had on hand. We loved it I will be making it again this week

  • This is easy to make and tastes delicious. It has a nice combination of colors also. Highly recommended.

  • My kiddos dislike coleslaw, or anything to do with cabbage, with a passion...but they LOVED this I used a large cabbage, two large carrots, and raisins (I was all out of cranberries), and there was no left overs. They even asked if I made more the next day at dinner time Awesome recipe.

  • I made this tonight as an accompaniment to tri-tip steak from Costco. It was excellent. The flavors went really well with the steak believe it or not. I was skeptical when my husband decided this was what he wanted, but the steak the slaw were perfect together. I made some home-made dinner rolls also. The combination of fluffy soft fresh rolls, tangy sweet cole slaw and carmelized steak was AWESOME. Thanks for sharing the recipe.

  • I added rice vinegar with the apple cider vinegar. Added cashews in lieu of walnuts and added blueberries Salt and pepper, 1 teaspoon lemon, lemon pepper.

  • A simple yet very tasty red cabbage slaw I was out of dried cranberries and so in go the raisins and it was fine. Didnt seem to need the milk: it was beautifully creamy without being runny at all. I did add about 1/2 teaspoon each of salt and pepper and one teaspoon of lemon juice. It really is delicious Next time might toss in a minced jalapeno and an apple or something just for fun. Note: I bought the smallest red cabbage I could find and it still made about 4 litres of salad. Yum

  • Loved it Wouldnt change a thing. I could literally eat this everyday

  • Loved this easy recipe. Didnt have dried cranberries so I used dried cherries. Also, I left out the milk. Definitely make again

  • Loved this recipe I followed the complete recipe except I cut up a honey crisp apple into match stick size pieces and tossed in. So good This is a keeper

  • I made it exactly to the recipe. I found the dressing to be so bland that I ended up putting some bottled slaw dressing on it too, to add some flavor. I dont think I will make it again. It was disappointing.

  • It was easy to prepare, very tasty and looked delicious. I will definitely make it again.

  • I omitted the milk, sugar and walnuts. I added more carrots then the recipe call for. Plus a dash of season salt. I like a more half and half ratio. Tried it with out chilling was good.

  • Very good, thanks

  • Great, simple recipe. The only thing I added is I massaged the cabbage to soften it a little, and sprinkled it with sea salt before serving.

  • I substituted Splenda sweetener for the sugar and used Balsamic vinegar. Sweet and crunchy. Colorful too.

  • I really liked this recipe, great way to add some color to a cookout and tastes good

  • I have a cole slaw recipe that everyone loves so I have not tried a new one in years. I had a head of red cabbage I needed to use, though, and this recipe fit the bill. We loved it I did not need the milk to thin the dressing and although it is very basic dressing without much pizazz, it really doesnt need it. The walnuts and cranberries are the star of the show I will make this again.

  • I made this today because the farmers market was selling red cabbage. Almost nothing else in the recipe was, however, left as is: Added sesame oil but no vinegar. Used grated apples but no carrots. Used bacon crumbles but no walnuts. Used a bit of brown sugar but no white sugar. Used celery seed and a bit of chopped onion. Bottom line, came out pretty good

  • Great

  • Simple and delicious

  • I had almonds and used them instead of walnuts. It was great and I will do it again.

  • I wanted to make it non-dairy and I have people eating it who are limited in their ability to eat carbohydrates and calories so I used a reduced fat (lite) mayonnaise, omitted the milk (I replaced it with 2 Tbsp of no-chicken broth), nuts and cranberries, but added 1/4 of a very thinly sliced white onion and about 1/8-1/4 tsp of Trader Joes 21 Season Salute, 1/4 tsp of salt and an extra 1/2 tsp of plain white sugar. Oh, I also replaced the cider vinegar with White Wine Vinegar. It was enjoyed by all.

  • It was a good salad. The only thing I would add is salt and pepper.

  • Turned out great I added raisins as well and it was Delish

  • Im sorry, but I thought this was kind of bland. Its not made like "old fashioned" slaw by salting and waiting an hour and squeezing out the water, hence the recipe needed salt (1 tbls). If that was done, it might help. Plus, it has no other seasonings such as celery or mustard seed which might help as well. I made it exactly how the recipe was written. It was just ok. I will eat it, but when I make it again, Ill change it up a little.

  • Super easy. Used a leftover 1/2 head of cabbage and 1/2 bag of pre-shredded carrots. Did not have walnuts; used pecan pieces instead. Almost forgot to put cranberries in but when I did, they made this dish delicious

  • Delish and visually appealing

  • We like this twist on slaw I added MORE of everything though. More carrots, more cranberries, more walnuts To me, it tastes best cold, not room-temp.

  • Big hit - I was out of cranberries so used golden raisins and dried cherries. Delicious

  • Good Recipe. I love tons of mayo in mine and it seemed a bit on the low side. I would up it by 50% in this recipe if you want it creamier.

  • I made the magazine version of the recipe, but doubled the amount of walnuts and cranberries. It tasted great and kept its crunch over several days.

  • Absolutely brilliant. So easy. I made about half the quantity but added a bit of drumhead cabbage for colour. I also added grated apple and shallots. So delicious. I will be using this over and over again.

  • DELICIOUS Substitutions I used (just because its what I had on hand): red wine vinegar and honey

  • Love this recipe, make it frequently, the only thing I change is leaving out the sugar. Very easy, very pretty and delicious. My favorite kind of recipe.

  • Delicious I am always looking for ways to make veggies more appealing. I doubled the cranberries and would double the walnuts next time. I will make this again

  • Resting overnight

  • I made this as written. Horrible stuff. This will all be going in the garbage.

  • Great recipe, made this several times and loved it each time. This will definitely be a regular for us.

  • We love this I did make a few changes. I added a little chopped red onion. I used Miracle Whip, so I did not add sugar, but I still used the cider vinegar. I had candied pecans so thats what I used. Its delicious and my formerly coleslaw hating husband loves it too.

  • This was really good I had no idea what to do with the 2 heads of red cabbage that were in my CSA basket It was a light and fresh side dish

  • Very good. I was actually looking for a recipe using red cabbage without mayo and I forgot where I saw it. I did find this one which did not have so much mayo and it was perfect. Went well with fish.

  • This is fast and easy for coleslaw.Ive made this with green cabbage as well as the red.I used pecans instead of walnuts,and a bit more vinegar but otherwise followed to a tee.Good stuff ,a keeper.Thanks for posting.

  • It hasnt even been in the refrigerator for the 4 hours called for in the recipe, and it already tastes good I had run out of onion, so I used some green onions I need to use up. I also was out of carrots, which is unheard of in this household I used coconut sugar - 2 teaspoons since it is a bit less intense compared to regular sugar. I didnt want to open a new apple cider vinegar, so I used some orange muscat champagne vinegar in addition to what was called for. We are pleased with this recipe. ??

  • Very easy and enjoy being able to taste the veggies as the dressing isnt overpowering. Definitely keeping in my go to recipes.

  • Simple ingredients for simple deliciousness

  • Hubby prefers this to regular coleslaw.

  • I used balsamic instead of apple cider and didnt care much for the recipe. Too bland

  • Jumped onto Allrecipes to look for a quick slaw recipe to use up a small cabbage I had on hand. I like creamy slaws with unique ingredients, so this fit the bill.Yummy I eyeballed the measurements. Used light mayo, rice vinegar (had it on hand) instead of cider, and pecans (hand them on hand) instead of walnuts, added a couple twists of black pepper. Left out the carrots because I was lazy and didnt want to shred up any. Its super good without even setting overnight. The nuts add a little crunch. The cranberries add a bit of tangy sass. None of my substitutions will substantially change the original recipe. Thumbs upThis is going to make a great topping for tonights burgersThanks for the recipe

  • I doubled the recipe (mainly b/c i was tired of looking at that head of cabbage any longer. lol) increased the dressing ingredients slightly. it was devoured i will definitely make this again

  • Made this as written and enjoyed it. It went very well with spicy, jalapeo hamburgers. Thank you for the recipe.
