I wanted to bump this up because I cannot tell you how good it is with a grilled brat and stir-fried peppers and onions. So delicious.

I make it fairly regularly and I use
1/2 cup mayo, 1/2 cup cream
1/8 tsp white pepper, dash salt
1.5T distilled white vinegar
9 packets splenda
The juice of 2 lemons
Pack of coleslaw from the pre-washed salad area

I just made some for dinner tonight. All the non-LCers rave about it too.

Default better with broccoli slaw

It's even better with broccoli slaw mix in a bag. It stays crisp for a couple of days in the fridge and doesn't get soggy, and I like the taste better too.

Great coleslaw!

I followed the recipe with two exceptions: I used C of double cream (without the extra half-and-half) and I cut the Splenda to 3 packets.

So good!

This is the only recipe I've used for years. I always use HWC only and reduce the amount of sweetener. I make huge batches of it when I go away to visit family or camping. That way I know I always have a side dish to go lunch and dinner, or I just eat it on it's own. I need to make a huge batch because everybody else loves it too and wouldn't be too pleased if I kept it all to myself. When camping I just put it into a large good quality ziploc bag and put in the cooler. It saves space by keeping it in a ziploc bag.

Default An alternative - sugar free slaw

My husband raves over my recipe for this, you might like it too

Shredded cabbage (I buy pre-shredded angel hair cut cabbage)
celery seed
black pepper
sugar and salt free Maruchan brand rice wine vinegar
mayo

I mix the vinegar and mayo first (how much depends on your taste and how much cabbage you are using) - so it smells not too tart (I don't taste while making this), add a good amount of celery seed, the black pepper..mix all together well.
Add in cabbage, mix to coat. Refrigerate. Give this at least an hour or two to let the flavors meld. Even better the next day.

hey! i used rice vingar too. it was the only thing i had in the house. so that's what i used.

i have already been through another large bowl of this and i added a lot of fresh shrimp to it too to make it more of a meal.

well, now i have one last package of cabbage and i'm trying to hold off a few days before making it since i've been eating it like crazy, plus this time i want to add some fresh slices of jicama which i don't currently have so gotta go shoppping. my next version will have fresh sliced jicama and shrimp. dang...and all this time i didn't even think i liked coleslaw.

it's the perfect summer salad.

I've always liked this recipe but never thought of adding shrimp & jicama.

Thanks for the great idea. Adding that to today's shopping list. Yum, perfect for a light dinner. It's too hot to cook!

I make my own cole slaw, but one reason is that everyone makes cole slaw too danged SWEET. Sweetness ruins it for me. I'd never make this particular recipe because Splenda (or current sweetener of choice).

But I do make cole slaw that has no sweeteners at all in it, and everyone loves it who has tried it. Time to make it again!

Default Splenda alternative?

DRESSING:
*1/3 cup Splenda
*1/2 tsp salt
*1/8 tsp white pepper
*1/2 cup half and half (or 1/4 cup half & half and 1/4 cup heavy cream)
*1/2 cup mayo
*1 1/2 tbsp white vinegar
*2 1/2 tbsp lemon juice

Combine all dressing ingredents in bowl and whisk together until smooth. Add cabbage/carrots and mix well. Refrigerate for minimum of 2 hrs before serving.

When made with 1/2 cup of Half & Half, 1 cup servings = approx. 4 net carbs.


Would love to try this recipe but cannot use Splenda. Would no calorie Truvia work as well?

Yes, it should work just fine . However, I would adjust the amount of sweetener "to taste" ... you might find you need less truvia than the amount of splenda called for.

By the way, I have made similar recipe using sour cream instead of half & half (reduce vinegar & lemon juice to 1 Tbsp each), with very good result
