"This is a great basic recipe for creamy coleslaw! It is best to make at least 15 minutes before serving so the flavors can all mingle. I used cider vinegar, real mayo, and celery salt (didn't have celery seed in the cabinet). Served it on the Shredded Venison sandwiches that are also from Taste of Home. You should all try them too, it's a delicious BBQ recipe that would work with pretty much any protein (not just venison)!"

"I used a pre-shredded cole slaw bag mix for a time-saver. Thought the taste improved with sitting overnight in the frig. Great recipe!"

"This recipe was just missing something. I just couldn't figure out what it was. It was too bland tasting though. I'll be looking for another slaw recipe when ready to make some again."
