This is a sweet but tangy slaw that my family loves. It reminds me of the slaw at KFC. It's always best if left over night.

This is awesome! I made with light Miracle Whip. Skipped the onion. I almost added more liquid as it seemed very light on dressing when I made it. Glad that I didn't however as it moistened up after sitting in the refrigerator for awhile. I also added some celery seed as we like that in our coleslaw. Will definately make this again. Thanks.

I like my slaw more on the vinegar side then the sweet side so I reduced the sugar to 1/4 cup doubled the vinegar and instead of milk I used buttermilk. If you can make this the day before you need it...it's worth the wait. Read More

This is now the ONLY cole slaw dressing that I'll make. (We used to use Marzetti which everyone liked but this is so easy and delicious.) The ingredients are always in our home making it easy to whip it together. I made this 2 days ago and what was left over tastes even BETTER! Make it a day or 2 in advance and it only improves. AMAZING. Don't change a thing. Thanks for this recipe Cookingnut! Read More

This is very much like the cole slaw we make in our deli where people come from miles around for the cole slaw! Except you don't really need the milk or the lemon juice. The mayonaise is enough without the milk and the vinegar doesn't need the lemon juice. We also don't use onions in our slaw. The dressing-Mayo, sugar and vinegar will definitely get much juicier as it sits. Shredded cabbage and carrots with the mayo, vinegar and sugar is all that we put in ours and it's famous for several counties around. Read More

Yummy! I gave this 4 stars only because i did add celery seed celery upped the vinegar (because I thought it was a little sweet)and reduced my mayo. Very good! Ok so I did some tweeking to meet my preferences but this gave me the good foundation I needed for the slaw. I did use onion powder instead of an onion only b/c my hubby would kill me if he found onion in his food! LOL. Will use it again! Thanks! Read More
