To come up with this dish, I used a number of different recipes, plus some ideas of my own. It's great for a potluck because it's made the night before and the flavor keeps getting better. Whenever I serve it, I'm inundated with recipe requests. —Ruth Lovett, Bay City, Texas
This cool, crisp coleslaw is a great compliment to any meal. “I adapted this colorful, tangy dish from a more time-consuming recipe I had. It’s easy to double or triple for potlucks, too.” Maryrose DeGroot - State College, Pennsylvania
I'VE BEEN SHARING this recipe for over 45 years! It's easy to make, keeps well and is great to take along for potluck suppers.
Our family and friends enjoy this cabbage salad whenever I serve it.

Whenever I saw my mother mixing up a big bowl of coleslaw, I knew she was expecting a houseful of guests to share our meal. Those were always exciting times for me since I loved company! Besides, this slaw was one of my favorite treats at any time.
This tasty recipe was give to me by a friend whose ancestors were from Norway. I especially enjoy bringing this salad dish to family get-togethers since I can make it days ahead. A pint of it also makes a nice gift.
Served with rolls or homemade bread, this slaw's hearty enough to be a main course, it's also a great side dish—my family especially likes it accompanying steak and corn on the cob. It tastes good with ribs besides.
Even people who don't enjoy cabbage like it prepared this way. (I know...my husband, Glen, is one of them!) The honey's sweetness helps with that.
Glen works for our local police department, and I work for the fire department. We have a pair of sons, 19 and 6, and a daughter who's 4.
My grandmother taught me how to make the dressing for this coleslaw when I was very young. It's not too tart and not too sweet. Sometimes I make 8 gallon jars a week at the restaurant where I work! It gets lots of compliments.

Classic Creamy Coleslaw was served with fried chicken for years at an auction near Martha Artyomenko's Beaver Bay, Minnesota home. "When the lady who made this tasty salad move, I contacted her to get the recipe," Martha explains." My friends and I often take this coleslaw to weddings (like the one in the photo above) and other gatherings."
