    Changed it to add Rikki's Gourmet Thai Peanut Sauce instead of plain tahini, only added one TBSP balsamic. Will add 1/4 cups roasted peanuts when it has sat in the frig for a couple of hours, before serving. Also, substituted one can of mandarin oranges minus one tbsp of the juice. Very tasty. - 7/11/11

    We like the combination of tahini with the orange and the little bite of garlic. Superb! We think it needs a bit of salt, but rather than add salt to the slaw when making it, we sprinkled a little bit of finishing salt on it when serving. I gather this recipe is for people who want to cut sodium. - 7/16/11

    This was yummy. I'm going to try Blair1957's suggestion about the Thai Peanut Sauce next time. I used the rich dark balsamic vinegar (Modena) because I love the tang in it's flavor. - 7/31/12

    I liked this, although next time I'll leave out the orange sections. Next time I think I'll try it with Blair1957's peanut idea. And there WILL be a next time! - 2/8/12

    Yummy! As well as Clementines, I also like fine diced pineapple, or fine diced apple in slaw. Nice dressing, more exotic than my usual, but very good.

  • Sometimes Tahini is on the condiment aisle rather than in Asian section. It is also not cheap.
    If you want more traditional tasting slaw use apple cider vinegar and a little plain greek yogurt. - 7/31/14

    Has anyone tried this with something other than OJ? I don't buy orange juice or really any juice because of the sugar in juices. I sometimes will buy diet juice for my hubby that is low sugar but that is cran-raspberry or cran-pom juice - 8/2/13

    I frequently add broccoli slaw to regular green salads, but this sounds like a really good recipe and I will try it soon. - 8/23/12

    Please change the picture! Those clementines look like giant slugs and the broccoli slaw is too pale! Very unappealing pic. - 8/1/12
