This was good. It is flavorful, but not a "wow" recipe. No one commented on it at my party.

Absolutely Awesome! I used one 16 oz Tri Blend of Cole Slaw. I halved the sugar, vinegar, mustard, oil and salt. After boiling the dressing I allowed it to cool before I poured onto the vegetabl...

This was a very good marinated coleslaw. I halved the recipe and used a 1 lb. bag of coleslaw mix. It wasn't enough cabbage mixture. I would suggest using 2-1 lb. bags for 1/2 of the recipe. ...

Absolutely wonderful. Made it for a family cookout and everybody loved it. I took the easy way out and used coleslaw mix (2-16 oz bags) that already had the carrots in it. Update: this time I...

I hate coleslaw but my hubby loves it, I saw this recipe and thought this would be easy to make and boy was it. Not only that it was tasted great. I was the kid in school that told a teacher I c...
