I loved the zip that this dressing has! A traditional, creamy coleslaw with a kick. Unfortunately, I wasn't paying attention to the ounces on my coleslaw mix (only 16 oz) so it was a bit heavy on the dressing, but otherwise fantastic. I will definitely be making this again. Read More

This coleslaw is delicious. The horseradish gives it an extra oomph. Not too runny but just creamy enough. Read More

This recipe was perfect! Just like the old-fashioned coleslaw I grew up with. I didn't have horseradish on hand (alas!), but it was delicious anyway. I'm sure the horseradish would have made it even better. The ingredient portions were perfect, so that nothing overpowered the rest. Very creamy, and easy to make. This recipe is a keeper. I had two bowls for dinner, and I'm going to have another bowl for a snack tonight! By the way, be sure you get the jumbo 28 oz. size of coleslaw mix as called for in this recipe, rather than the standard 16 oz. size. (P.S. I like a hint of onion in my slaw, so I minced 2 Tbs. of onion and added that to the coleslaw mix.) Read More

This was definitely a zippier coleslaw than we are used to, but, very tasty! We really liked the slight "heat" you get from the horseradish. It was a tad too tart for our taste. I will make again, but, add a little more sugar next time. Read More

This was delicious! I didn't have quite enough horseradish so I added some French's horseradish mustard and just skipped the dry mustard. Like another reviewer, I like a bit of onion in my slaw so added some minced onion as well, but otherwise followed the recipe exactly. It was a big hit at our "autumn picnic" at work! Next time I make it I will make sure to have enough horseradish on hand for even more zip! Do pay attention to how much slaw is in the package you use (since most aren't 28 oz.) or you will have way too much dressing. I always mix the dressing in one bowl and put the slaw in another and add til I get the consistency I want. Definitely my go to slaw now! Read More

This recipe is a great, basic coleslaw recipe. I used apple cider vinegar because I like the flavor in coleslaw, and left out the horseradish because I knew there would be kids eating it. I made a triple batch (but only doubled the dressing amounts) for 40 people to pile up on top of pulled pork sandwiches. I was asked for the recipe by quite a few. My new go-to! Read More

Really great! I have made several coleslaw recipes from this site, this is by far the best. I have made it exactly as it is written, and I have also made it as it is written +1/2 teaspoon of cayenne pepper and one teaspoon of poppyseeds. It is great both ways, but I think I prefer it with the extra heat and seeds. Either way, you cannot go wrong! Let it sit for a couple of hours before you eat it. Read More

Used this recipe for the dressing only...dropped the horseradish for personal preference and used cider vinegar instead of rice...de-lish! And this is coming from someone who is not a fan of coleslaw. Read More

I used about a quarter of a large head of cabbage and one good sized carrot instead of a mix, which seemed perfect for the amount of dressing. I don't care for sweet cole slaw, so reduced sugar to 2 Tablespoons. I think it's one of the best slaws I've ever had. The horseradish really makes this awesome. Read More
