"I'm not a big coleslaw fan, but I definitely did some overeating the day I made this. Wouldn't change a thing!"

"I hate coleslaw, but love this! The dressing is great. I have used the dressing for tuna macaroni salad, too. I omitted the olives and used chunks of cheese. This is great for potluck and have very little leftover every time!"
