I find the secret to making perfect coleslaw everytime is to put the sugar directly on the cabbage mix for about 10 to 15 minutes before adding the dressing mix then refrigerate and let stand before serving. Also, try additing salted sunflower seeds for an interesting twist your family will love. Read More

I made the recipe using cider vinegar and I skipped the onion and green pepper. I served the slaw with baco-bits sprinkled on top. I thought it was tangy and tasty. Read More

I didn't use any vegetable oil. Used half as much sugar as called for... it just looked too sweet as it was. Delicous. Keeps for a long time in the fridge. (At least eight days.) Read More

A friend gave me a recipe similar to the dressing part. But she used a bag of slaw mixture added 1/2 c. shelled sunflower seeds. She also used a package of ramen noodles. The "chicken broth" powder was mixed with 1/2 c. vinegar & 1/2 c. oil. The noodles were broken up into small pieces (uncooked) & mixed with the cabbage mixture. The dressing was put on & mixed through last minute. She called it "Oriental Cole Slaw" & almost everyone who has tried it loves it. It is great for outdoor pitch-ins since there is no creamy dressing to go bad. Read More

Great recipe. Very flexible - I adjusted it to work with what I had on hand and it turned out great! I used apple cider vinegar and olive oil instead of white wine vinegar and vegetable oil. I also used a bag of a pre-shredded slaw mixture so the bell pepper and onion were left out. Read More

I loved it! I just used a bag of shredded cabbage and carrots and did not use onions or green peppers(prefer cole slaw without them). Oops I used regular vinegar and it tasted fine! My husband really liked it too (He is very picky)! I only made 1/2 C vinegar 1/2 C veg. oil and 1/2 C sugar for a 16 oz bag. Read More
