Original Old Bay® Coleslaw

Rated as 4.5 out of 5 Stars

"This recipe used to be printed on the Old Bay® cans, but it was removed a decade or more ago; it is very different than the one on the current Old Bay website. I much prefer this one and even today occasionally see a posting from someone looking for the old recipe from the Old Bay can. Well, here it is!"

Excellent recipe! I really thought that the Old Bay would overpower it but it didn't. I omitted the bell pepper and onion and it turned out great.

The flavor on this was very mild. The next time I make it I'm probably going to add more seasoning. I also ended up tripling the recipe to feed my family of six as a reasonable side dish. It's 8...
