    Made this salad today for an early Memorial Day celebration and it was Delicious would definitely make this again.
    Since Cabbage does not like my BF LOL I used Trader Joe's Broccoli slaw to replace the cabbage and it was good.

    Very refreshing. YUM!

    I've been looking for a WW friendly "slaw" recipe. I just plugged this into the recipe builder on the WW site and 1/2 a cup of this delicious sounding slaw is 1 point! Thank you so much for sharing this! - 5/29/10

  • Thanks for sharing. I really like the cranberries in it. I have been making a variation of this with shredded zuchinni and carrots. Adding some red cabbage would really make this colorful recipe. - 6/3/10

  • Took this to a Memorial Day cookout, and got raves! Instead of the olive oil/lemon dressing, I combined vanilla WeightWatchers yogurt and raspberry fat-free salad dressing, so the slaw was a little sweet. Used pecans since I had no walnuts on hand. Thanks for sharing! YUMMY! - 6/1/10
