OMG!!!! This is by far the Best tasting Coleslaw Recipe I've ever tried!!!! Very simple. We ate it as soon as I made this. It wasn't even chilled. Thank You Catherine.

yummy so very good, creamy and full of flavor. I used bagged coslaw with carrots. So happy with the results of this recipe.

I made with 2 packets stevia instead of sugar, and with cumin seeds instead of celery seeds, using bagged cole slaw mix. Excellent.

Easy, quick and good. The kids liked it.

Great coleslaw. Made it as written except added some shredded carrots as well for color. I like the simple list of ingredients.

SO easy! I added a shredded carrot for color. Didn't measure any ingredients. I made the dressing in a large Pyrex dish that has a cover. Then I added the cabbage and carrot and just put the lid...

I used bagged slaw mix, and made this exactly as written. I let it chill for about 2 hrs. It was wonderful, so good I ate the whole bag at dinner. I would not change a thing

Wonderful. quick and great with BBQ.
