This is amazing...I never knew a non-mayo slaw could be so good. I'm watching my calories so I substituted egg beaters in for the yolk and 1/3 c. 1% milk in for the half and half and it still turned out great. Thanks so much for the recipe - it's a keeper!

This is the best cole slaw recipe! I also added an extra spoon of sugar. After it came out of the fridge I poured it over a bag of precut cole slaw foud in the produce dept. and instant PERFECT cole slaw. I will never buy the store made stuff again!

This was the first time I have made coleslaw dressing from scratch (I was too lazy to go to the store!) and it was great! Everybody really enjoyed it...more so than the store bought dressing. I didn't have half and half on hand so I used half whipping cream and half whole milk instead.

This was a very good recipe. Next time I make it (and I will make it again) I'll increase sugar to 4 tablespoons. Just a personal preference. Thanks Letha!

This recipe is exactly what I've been looking for! Everyone loved it and I didn't change a thing. You can make a double batch and freeze half. Defrost in frige and you are ready to go.

Very simple to make! I added celery seeds a bit of salt and pepper and mixed it with broccoli slaw. I let it sit for six or so hours to marinate a bit it was very tasty! What's even better -- is that this recipe has ingredients that are always around the house so there's no need to ever buy slaw dressing again!

Yummm!!! I used this in my chicken salad instead of a store-bought version. Easy and makes all of the difference in taste.

This dressing was great!! My daughter who doesn't like slaw had seconds. I made this with broccoli slaw. I didnt' have half n half so I used heavy cream and I did add some celery salt and celery seeds just because I seem to like them in my slaw. Thanks Letha this will be my only dressing for slaw from now on
