An enjoyable coleslaw recipe. The sweet edge and the light tang from the vinegar and the lemon really made it. Thanks for sharing.

This is a wonderful coleslaw recipe! Until I found Recipe Zaar KFC's coleslaw was the only one I could tolerate. Then last year at the Farmer's Market a farmer bartered with me for some of our baked goods and he threw a nice big cabbage in with the corn. I didn't want to waist the cabbage so I tried several different coleslaw recipes and found out just how good it can be. With that out of the way, I have to say this is more then a 5 STAR coleslaw! The sweet, tangy flavor is so yummy. I will be making this again soon. Thanks for posting this recipe. Made and reviewed for the 13th Vegin' Swap.

So, I cheated a bit and bought preshredded cabbage and carrots. The rest of the recipe I followed. Liked the addition of the onion, I minced mine pretty fine. Dressing has a touch of tart and a touch of sweet. Perfect with burgers!!

Great coleslaw recipe. Loved the sweetness and the slight tang combined with the bite of the onion. I might toss in some raisins next time I make it! Thanks for posting. Made for ZWT5.

This was excellent! It really did taste authentically Aussie and reminded me of childhood barbecues with grilled sausages and coleslaw. I reduced the sugar slightly and used cider vinegar and it was delicious. Thanks for posting.

I have to say this is a perfect coleslaw. It is not terribly different than my usual slaw except for the freshly squeezed lemon juice and that is what makes it taste so incredible. I will never make slaw without lemon juice from now on!!! I did use low fat mayo which didn't seem to create a problem. Thanks for sharing this lovely recipe. Made for ZWT5 Hell's Kitchen Angels.

I just plain like to snack on slaw and this is a very good one. Made for Zingo, ZWT5. Oh yeah, served on a cabbage leaf for a fun presentation.

I had a bag a preshredded coleslaw mix so I used that instead of the cabbage and carrot but followed the rest of the recipe as written other then I used Splenda instead of sugar and 2% milk instead of milk. Made for Zingo ZWT5.

A very nice coleslaw. I used fat free milk and mayo and splenda instead of the sugar and everything still worked well. I had some as a side as one meal and had some on a chicken sandwich and it was good both times. Made for the Zingo portion of ZWT5 for the Chow Hounds.

I enjoyed this slaw! I usually don't add onions, or if I do, add scallions, so this was a litttle different. I thought it was just the right amount of sweetness. Thanks Bellinda! Made for ZWT 2009- Zingo.
