    Pretty basic coleslaw, nice and refreshing on a 87 degree evening. Went great with our grilled pork chops. We really liked having coleslaw made out of zucchini instead of the typical cabbage. We used coarse sea salt and fresh ground pepper for added flavoring.  -  15 Apr 2014  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    I made this slaw this morning, at first taste was bland. VERY important to let the flavors blend for at least an hour. I substituted stevia and left out the sugar. Lightly salt the shredded zucchini and squeeze the liquid out after the 30 minutes. I used a Miracle Whip(not light) type dressing, also added 1/4 tsp. celery seed, some minced onion and about a tsp. of white vinegar. Wow, this is good!  -  13 Jul 2014  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    I added some broccoli and dried cranberries, a little vinegar and it was AMAZING! Really liked the zucchini. I have been looking for some new recipes using zucchini and I found a winner.  -  24 Jan 2016  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
