This colorful coleslaw is a longtime family favorite. Cabbage, carrots and green pepper are blended with a tasty dressing that gets its zest from a hint of mustard. When Mom set this slaw on the table, it disappeared fast. —Dianne Esposite, New Middletown, Ohio

"Made with few changes. I added more sugar after tasting -like mine sweeter. I also nuked 3/4 cup raisins in some water to plump and added because we like the taste. Hasn't sat for 2 hours yet but sure it will be great."

"This was a BIG disappointment. All we could taste was the mustard and little else. Would definitely not try this again. A waste of good ingredients."

"My only change was 1-1/4 Tbl. of Splenda Sugar Blend. Whether on wheat crackers on as a side with salmon, this Slaw was great."
