More like 4 and a half stars. A tad on the sweet side (should have listened to reviews and cut back on sugar some), but still so so yummy. Seemed dry when first put together, but it really creams up quickly in the frig - 2 hours is plenty of time for it to set up. I added two diced radishes, I think next time I will add four, to help the sweet factor and to add some more crunch. Aftter reading reviews, I added more onion, ground mustard and a tad more salt. Yummers! Served with ribs and baked beans. My boyfriend's take: "better than Southern cooking and I never had to leave my porch in Arizona." And he is picky about his slaw. POSTSCRIPT: I cut back on the sugar the next time, and it just didn't taste as good. I tried adding the sugar back in after I had already added the slaw -- didn't really work.
This was great! I used mayo instead of miracle whip and rice wine vinegar instead of white vinegar, but just barely cut back on the sugar because rice vinegar is slightly sweet. My friends agreed that it was even better than the slaw at the great BBQ place in town. Will definitely make again!
The BEST slaw recipe ever!! I just finished making it and YUM-O!!! Can't wait to try it in a few hours. It taste's just like the coleslaw at the fast food chicken place. The only change that I made was I substituted celery seed for the poppy seed. I didn't have bagged slaw mix, shredded a head of cabbage and a carrot. I just wanted to add that I have use allrecipes for a few years and this is the first time I have taken the time to rate a recipe, it's that good!!!
This is very good- almost the my family's long time recipe. One thing I do to make it creamier and less watery- I only put half the dressing on it to begin with. After an hour, I drain some of the dressing off, and then put the rest on- make a little extra dressing if needed. After you put any vinegar based dressing on cabbage, some of it's water will leach out, making it soupy- this makes it creamier.
This is very much like the slaw we make in our deli and people come from other counties just to get this slaw. I tried cutting down the ingredients from the huge amount we make at the store and it comes out to very much like this recipe. Except we don't use any oil in our dressing. You don't need it. Just added calories. We use a good mayonaisse instead of salad dressing and our slaw dressing would come out to 1 cup of mayo, 2/3 cup sugar and 2.5 tablespoons white vinegar. About 1.5 pounds of shredded cabbage and one shredded carrot. We don't use onions in our slaw although some probably would like that. I would probably use a good sweet onion like a Vadalia maybe. I'm thinking I'd also use celery seed instead of poppy seeds. We use celery seed in our pickled slaw and it's good! Letting it sit a while is the key. That loosens up the dressing. Just remember to stir it good before serving.
I just made this coleslaw for a big cookout that I am hosting tomorrow and I had to rate this right away! It is delicious! I haven't even chilled it for the 2 hours and it is so good! I can't wait to share it with my friends and family. I followed the recipe exact with the exception of using mayo and no poppy seeds. This is my slaw recipe for now on thank you!
This was absolutely delicious and I'm not even a huge slaw fan! I used two bags of prepared slaw and made the dressing as directed. Plenty of dressing. Refrigerated overnight and plenty of sweet creamy slaw. Nice recipe I'll do this one many times.
I found this to be too sweet and too heavy on the dressing- if I make it again I will reduce the sugar by about half and add the liquid to the slaw mix bit by bit until I get the desired amount of wetness- with the full amount of dressing it was just too goopy.
