In fact, we offer this dish daily in JO's Kitchen Cafe, where it's won our male customers' seal of approval again and again!

NOTES : If you have a large strainer on hand, it's easy to blanch veggies. Just put them in the strainer; once the water's boiling, lower the strainer into the water. When the cooking time is up, run the veggies, still in the strainer, under cold water (or immerse them in a bowl of ice water).

Got this recipe from my ww leader.

9 med. chopped potatos
1 Can 1/2 fat celery soup
3/4 C no fat mayo
1/4 C Vinegar
2 celery stalks
2 chopped green onions
2 hard boiled eggs

Mix soup, mayo and vinegar and 1/2 tsp pepper. Mix thouroughly with chopped ingredients.

10 servings 1 C = 4 points.

I always add a little mustard when I make potato salad just to give it some zing. I would mix it with the soup, mayo and vinegar.

I have been looking for an old Weight Watchers recipe for Mock Potato Salad. When I was on the program years ago I used to make it. It is made with cauliflower and tastes great. Please help if you can, Thanks, Maxie

07-10-2002, 01:08 PM
I made this over the fourth and got many recipe requests from non-WW and WW alike! It was delicious and very easy to make. I did substitute balsamic vinegar for the red wine because it's what I had in the house. I think the red wine would have been slightly better, but not by much...the balsamic was dee-lish! Thanks for a great recipe.

08-07-2002, 03:56 AM
We recently got this recipe at a meeting. I hope it is what you are looking for:

2 hard boiled eggs
2 10oz bags of cauliflower
1/2 chopped onion
4TBSP. Fat Free Mayo
2TBSP bacon bits

cook and cool cauliflower and mix in remaining ingredients. 1 cup = 1.5 points

08-12-2002, 09:24 PM
Thanks for the recipe. Although it isn't the one I was looking for, it really looks good and I will try it. Thanks again.

10-05-2002, 07:18 PM
Does it call for 1/2 a can of the soup or is it 1/2 fat soup???

I recently ate at a Sweet Tomatoes Restaurant in Orlando, and tried their cole slaw, and it was GREAT. It APPEARED to have only 2 things in it, the shredded cabbage and crushed pineapple, with a really good thinish (as in NOT thick and creamy) lighter tasting dressing. Does any one have anything close to this, that they might care to share. My S-I-L said she remembered a WW Cole Slaw recipe for many years ago made with pineapple.

08-06-2004, 02:12 PM
I make a Pineapple Coleslaw that contains a little low fat mayo, lots of garlic salt or powder, a big can of crushed pineapple, and shredded cabbage. You can mix it according to your own preferences. I hope this helps!!

08-06-2004, 05:02 PM
I think Sweet Tomatoes thins their mayo with milk and probably add sweetener. You could try thinning the mayo and add some Splenda. That is the kind of dressing I would use on fruit.

Try plain yogurt with Splenda and see if you get the taste you want.


12-30-2004, 10:07 PM
Do you know the points for this?


01-03-2005, 12:53 PM
Its is 2 Points per 1 cup serving.... :-)
Sounds Delish!!!!! Thanks 4 Posting...

01-12-2005, 11:16 PM
From your ingredients, it looks like it would make 18 servings only if they were 1/2 cup each.

Also, this salad "shrinks" if it sets for any length of time. Be careful of serving size.

I've had this recipe for years, using seasoned rice vinegar.


01-15-2005, 02:46 PM
This is a great recipie. I thought it was 3 pts ber Cup though.

8 Cups Cabbage, grated
1/4 Cup Carrot, grated
2 Tablespoons Onion, minced
1/3 Cup Splenda Granular

1/8 teaspoon Pepper
1/4 Cup Skim Milk
1/2 Cup Fat Free Mayo
1/4 Cup Buttermilk
1 1/2 Tablespoons White Vinegar

Cover and refrigerate for at least 2 hours before serving.
