It was perfect exactly as written, and I rarely think that. If I had wanted to add buttermilk and seeds and other junk I would not have looked for EASY coleslaw dressing. My husband loved it. He said, "now this is good slaw dressing". Read More

I rated this as a 3 because it is good, however by adding 1 tablespoon of honey, 2 tablespoons of buttermilk, 1 tbsp. of horseradish w/mustard, and a few shakes of celery seed this makes it 10 stars! Rest assured though if you don't have buttermilk,celery seed,or honey, it still would serve the purpose. Read More

This is exactly what it claims to be including the fact that you probably have the ingredients on hand. Easy, quick and tastes good. And again, please do not rate a recipe to which you've made modifications. It's not accurate to do so. I realize it's much easier to post your comment with a rating based on your modifications, but it's simply not right and chokes up the comments, making it more laborious to find a true and accurate rating and review. Get off your duff, write and submit your OWN recipe. Read More

Perfect! just the traditional taste one wants. if you are doing something different to it, IT IS NOT THIS RECIPE! Only a jerk would rate this a 3 star and then proclaim their version a 10 star! Read More

I rated it a 5 because I made it exactly as the recipe said. It was great. We ate it as a side as well as on a bun of BBQ pulled chicken. Really good both ways. If I had changed the recipe up, I wouldn't be rating this particular recipe. Read More

This is a very good basic coleslaw dressing, not too goopy. For one medium bowl of coleslaw, use this recipe at 9 servings, with half a head of finely sliced green cabbage and 2-3 grated carrots. Read More

Super yummy! I made it as is (with a little extra salt by accident) and it was great. I mixed it into a 14oz bag of coleslaw mix and it wasn't too runny or dry. I was afraid it would be too peppery because I'm not a fan of pepper, but it was well balanced. On my 2nd helping, I sprinkled a little celery seed on top (because I had some & I love that stuff!) and I liked it even better. Still, this recipe is great exactly as is and I appreciate that the recipe uses totally normal ingredients every regular cook would have on hand. Definitely making this again. Read More

I made this several times already, but the first time I made it for my sons graduation party as a side dish. I shredded a whole head of cabbage and 4 medium size carrots. Prepared dressing exactly as stated the day before in frig, using white vinagar, but adjusted servings for 20. Kept dressing in separate container until I was ready to serve. WOW was so good and some of my guests would not leave party till they had the copy of recipe in hands when they left. There was none left and this wasn't the only side dish made. I think the key was making dressing the day before and letting the flavors intensify overnight. Loved that it was simple and didn't need to buy anything to make this. Read More
