LOVED IT! I think the cabbage needs to be in even smaller pieces than I did and it probably would be a smidge better if left overnight but it was still excellent the way it was. I added quite a bit more mayo than suggested and only used half the salt. Next time I'd do more tomato and cucumber but this was a delicious quick and easy slaw! Read More

Super easy too much salt for my taste. I used 2 tablespoons of mayo. It was ok but I won't make it again. Read More

I was pleasantly surprised with this recipe. The ingredient list is so simple I didn't expect to enjoy it as much as I did. I am actually not a very big fan of coleslaws and am very picky as to how they're prepared. I couldn't get enough of this - I almost ate a whole bowl by itself. If I was going to change anything I would probably use less salt next time. Read More

Great slaw! I made this with tomatoes and cucumber that I had de-seeded (eliminated a lot of the water that can make slaw soupy). I found that I needed a lot more mayo than 1 tbsp - I used well over half a cup for 4 heaped cups of bagged slaw mix. Also used about 1/2 tsp of sugar because I am not keen on sweet slaw. Finally I used celery salt instead of plain because I like the flavor. This turned out to be a very tasty colorful dish that I am sure I will make again. Thanks Bluewoulf! Read More

I used a little more mayonnaise also and I added some dill weed and fennel seed. Great recipe and a nice changeup from the normal slaw. Read More

I'm not much of a coleslaw-type person but this sounded good so I tried it...and I'm so very glad I did! I seeded the cucumber (used 1 whole) and the tomato; used a purple onion and bagged mix that had a small amount of carrots & purple cabbage (also added quite a lot more mayo than called for). This made a very colorful mix! I also don't like sweet slaws so I tasted before I added the sugar then tasted again after adding the sugar. It wasn't sweeter but it was definitely better! All in all a great recipe and one I will make regularly! Read More

I love this recipe. This really is an Appalachian recipe. My grandmother used to make this and she lived in the heart of Appalachia in the coalfieds of Southwest Virginia. Read More
