    We love this coleslaw in our home! We tried it to use up kohlrabi, which we had no idea what to do with. The dressing is light, but just enough. I actually use a combo of honey and stevia in place of the sugar. We've made it 3 or 4 times now and eat it up every time.  -  08 Jul 2011  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    What a fun recipe! I enlisted the whole family to peel and chop. We are new fans of kohrabi and, as I suspected, it makes great coleslaw! I didn't have any mayo, so had to substitute Miracle Whip and cut the sugar back to 2 T. I'll try it again with mayo next week. I really liked how this recipe goes light on the dressing, giving us a much leaner, fresher tasting salad. This makes a couple quarts of slaw.  -  07 Oct 2010  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Not a fan of raw celery, so I left it out and didn't miss it. Used food processor to grate all veggies quickly. A fabulous slaw!  -  31 Jul 2011  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
