I am absolutely addicted to this salad right now. Eating it at least twice a week. Absolutly love the dressing and swapt out the daikon for red cabbage, making it even more colorful.

Thank you so much for your amating work.

Simple and tasty. Made with black tahini. Didn't have radish. Added salt and subbed Maple for Agave. This is one of the few recipes I saved.

Ooo thanks for sharing the modifications, Daniel, we appreciate it so much!

It is January and here in Switzerland the 3 main ingredients carrots, cabbage and daikon raddish are all available from local producers also at this time of the year. That makes this coleslaw a very nice dish to prepare these weeks/months. I am glad I found this recipe and I really like it very much! I agree with another comment that salt and dill are a nice addition ;-) Thank you for publishing this recipe!

I’m obsessed with creamy salads and sauces, so I was excited to try this coleslaw as a side dish. I really enjoyed it: it’s fresh and the vegetables remain crisp with the citrus and vinegar. I took honey instead of maple syrup, as the former is commonly used for cooking in Sweden. I noticed that there isn’t any salt in the dressing, so I added sea salt to balance the sweetness, acidity, and fat👌🏻. Dried dill and chives provide a nice top flavour!
I suppose that I should revise my idea of how a coleslaw should be (I’m not a strict old-definition vegetarian🤭), but I wouldn’t call this salad a coleslaw. It’s to light and mild for that. Don’t be discouraged! I’ll definitely make this salad again, as it’s easy to prepare👏🏼, versatile, and delicious. When I’ll have a strong desire for coleslaw, I’ll stay however with my mayonnaise-base ditto

So glad you enjoyed the recipe, Louise, and love that you added salt to help balance it out! The recipe is definitely lighter than usual coleslaw recipes. Perhaps it may be fun to experiment with adding mayonnaise to this one 🧐

This one tasted so much better than any other coleslaw I've ever eaten! Can't recommend this highly enough!

Aww what an incredible review, Nina! We're so happy to hear 🥰
