This is the best. My family is not a great lover of coleslaw. I made this for a change and even my fussy son enjoyed it and had a second helping. I chopped the onion and red pepper instead of slicing. I also added some sugar to the sauce for a little sweetness. I have finally found the coleslaw recipe I have been searching years to find.

I am not sure what the reave is over this coleslaw. We are coleslaw lovers and this was the worst I have ever made. Very bland and not sweet. You have to make sure you get a raisin in each bite in order to give it any hint of flavor. Read More

I found this to be a GREAT Coleslaw Recipe. I made minor modifications to the recipe based on previous comments. I added a bit of sugar, omitted the red pepper, replaced the red onion with a sweet vadalia onion and added about 1/2 cup finely chopped walnuts. I brought this to a lunch gathering and have several requests for the recipe. I will definitely be making this again!! We were very delighted with this recipe. Read More

What a really good coleslaw! I cheated and used the package slaw mix. I did not have any raisins so I added rice vineager for a little sweetness. This is the slaw I am making from now on!! Read More

Best 'slaw' yet! I added rice wine vinegar to the recipe instead of white wine (and actually forgot to add the mustard) and we couldn't keep our fingers out of it before it got to the fridge! Lots of freshly grated pepper and a touch of paprika mixed in with the dressing and what a hit. Read More

It really is "always a winner". I get rave reviews everytime I make this (especially from my mom). I only use 1/4 red onion so it's not over-powering and add an additional 1/4 to 1/2 cup of raisins if the cabbage is particularly bitter. This is a great all-occasion coleslaw (not just for bbqs).

This is my favorite way to serve cole slaw. We love the flavor of the Dijon mustard with the sweetness of the raisins. I add a little sugar to the dressing. Read More

Another winner! Thanks for sharing Kathy. I made this for Thanksgiving and doubled the recipe. The dish was scrapped clean. I did however substitute crushed pinapple for the raisins since my kids are not raisin fans. If you do this be sure to drain the pinapple well so that your coleslaw is not too watery. Read More

I found this receipe to be way too creamy. Next time I will use only 1/2 the amount of dressing and more raisens. But I will make it again it was still good. Read More
