Wonderful recipe. Have made it numerous times. At Christmas, my daughter-in-law said it was the best she ever tasted.

Would it be alright to substitute lemon juice for the vinegar? Dietitian comment: Yes, this substitution will not have a significant impact on the nutrients of concern for a kidney diet.

In following the above recipe for coleslaw can I use store bought pkged coleslaw and add the seasonings,skip the dressing and add 1/4 cup canned crushed pineapple & 1/8 cup dried cranberries? Dietitian comment: Yes the prepackaged coleslaw is slightly lower in potassium than the combined vegetables in this recipe. The pineapple and cranberries are kidney-friendly and sound like a tasty addition!

This is a GREAT place to get any kidney-friendly food and drink recipe. I wish that EVERY cookbook had the COMPLETE nutrient breakdown for each recipe. Also, every box or bag of food should have a COMPLETE nutrient breakdown.
