Is there a way to add more fiber to the coleslaw per 1/2 cup serving? Dietitian comment: You could add a soluble fiber supplement to the dressing before pouring over the vegetables or you could substitute grated Brussels sprouts of chopped kale for half of the cabbage.

The Nutrients per serving omits sugar in almost every recipe. The recipe includes sugar, so why is this? As a diabetic this a major concern in my deciding to proceed. From a CKD perspective the info is well covered. The nutritional analysis is incomplete by omitting the sugar content per serving. Dietitian comment: When we first started the recipe collection the main focus was on total carbs instead of sugars.

This was delicious. Because I'm also diabetic I omitted the sugar and it was still delicious. Just enjoyed a 1/2 cup of coleslaw with a serving of Tuna for lunch and finished off with a few dried cranberries.

Can I make this with artificial sweeter instead? Dietitian comment: Yes you can. Use 1 packet/1 serving and adjust the amount until you like the sweetness.

This is my second time to make this recipe. It is a bit spicy.

I make this often. I use bagged southern cole slaw mix. I use the doll. It's an amazing Cole slaw dressing. Several of my friends make it now as well. I am stage 3 CKD

I started making this for my mother who is on PD dialysis. We all love it. I have even taken it to BBQ's and friends feel the same. I also, do not use the dill in mine. I do not thin that it is needed.

I have been making this recipe for years. I don't use the dill, but it is the celery seed that takes it up a notch. Even better the next day

What mayonnaise is best to use? I have Smart Balance light. Dietitian comment: use the brand of your choice but compare sodium on the labels. Sometimes there is a big difference, especially between regular and light.

The dill in this recipe adds a wonderful flavor. Would make this again in a heartbeat.

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!

I made this for my family and it was a great hit. We liked it with the dill and celery seed. It was very easy and great the next day!

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.

This is one of the best recipes I've tasted.
