"This was a really good slaw but like some other reviewers noted, it did need a bit of vinegar. I added 1 tablespoon of cider vinegar and the flavor elevated. At first I thought it was a lot of mayo and sour cream for only one package of slaw mix but it was the right amount. Before you combine the dressing and slaw, taste to adjust flavor to your tastes. I also added black pepper, just because I like pepper! As a Volunteer Field Editor I recommend this recipe."

"I really love creamy, mayo based cole slaw. This one has a great mix of sweet and sour, although a bit of vinegar might add a little acid to accentuate the flavor. I made it for guests and they all loved it."

"To make this a "one disher" versus two dishes, I made the dressing first, in a Rubbermaid type container, then added the cabbage mixture. I can flip it every so often in the fridge til dinner time, instead of stirring it.

I've made it several times since then, and we've enjoyed it. We enjoy a hint of vinegar (lime juice, or other acidic) to cut down on the overall sweetness, so I did add that, in the additional makings. I also cut down on the sugar ever so slightly (personal preference, not the recipe's fault).
To make the slaw the star, we make tortillas on these hot summer nights, using this slaw, a tortilla wrap, and leftover grilled pork (though shrimp, fish, or chicken are all okay, too).
Thanks for sharing this recipe. Sorry I did make the modifications, so it isn't really the original, but, I hate doing dishes, so, I try to conserve whenever possible."
