This got very mixed reviews, wouldn't make it again, but not a disaster!

A real favourite, delicious and easy to make. I left out the red onion and subsituted spring onions cut finely. I have made it for picnics and lunches at home. The cheese gives it an extra taste (didn't use quite the quantites) and the sauce is great too.
A great recipie.

Absolutely delicious - so quick and easy to make! Made it for a picnic, but omitted the mustard because I had made some leek and mustard quiches. My friends loved this!

Just made this now in preparation for our Royal BBQ tomorrow, and I am struggling to put it in the fridge because I can't help but pick at it!! Simply gorgeous, the dressing beats any shop bought coleslaw, I actually added more red onion and a good quality Dijon helps!!

Made this twice now and been really yummy both times. Popular at BBQs! I used less onion and more carrot but this is just personal choice really. Also used a little less cheese and mixed it in. Much nicer than the normal supermarket coleslaw and easy to make too - would always do this in future!
