Far beyond the scope of grocery store coleslaw. I wanted this to go with a pork BBQ and it fits the bill perfectly with my favorite barbeque sauce. Definitely different though I agree with the review that tells to add celery seed. I added carrots and a little minced red onion to the mix as well. Read More

Many coleslaw recipes have either a mayo based dressing or a vinegar based dressing. The use of both in this recipe is outstanding. However as much as I love bacon and hard boiled eggs I found that they were out of place in coleslaw. Also you MUST use celery seed in any slaw. Just my personal take but this was a great place to start.. Read More

I omitted the eggs as I didn't like the idea of them with the other ingredients. Glad I did - this is some really really good slaw. Definitely refrigerate and leave for a few hours before you eat it - it's not nearly as good straight out of the mixing bowl. Thanks! Read More

The dressing on this slaw is wonderful. We liked the slaw but found the hard boiled egg a little different. Not bad - just something we're not used to in coleslaw. The bacon was a great addition. Yes I will be making this one again. Thanks Angiee for sharing the recipe. Read More

i wish i could give 3 and a half stars for this. the best way to describe it was.. pretty and interesting tasting. i made enough for 20 servings and there wasnt much left but i did see a table next to us who had a serving of it barely touched. 4 at our table had it and all said they prefer a regular coleslaw with a mayo/vinegar/sugar dressing. the egg was kind of strange but the bacon is ok i used dijon mustard because i didnt have grainy but i dont think it changed the result that much. thanks but it was just ok Read More

This recipe is quite good. I too omitted the eggs and bacon and added the celery seeds. I also added about 1/2 cup of finely chopped onions and 2 teaspoons of smoked paprika. Read More
