Reviews for Creamy Slaw
"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."
"My husband liked it. It had a nice zesty flavor with the mustard ingredient."
"Liked the slaw and the tang the mustard gave it. Very easy to put together."
"Coming from a family with "our own" slaw recipe, I was really taking a chance serving this one. I cut back on the mustard just a bit(personal taste) and it was delicious! My husband kept on raving about it. Easy to make and keeps well...IF there are leftovers!"
"Very nice dressing!!!! Didn't change a thing!"
"Too strong flavored - More sugar? Less liquid/lemon juice/mustard? Plus too much dressing so very liquid"
"Never make cole slaw with mayo or salad dressing; I just use oil, vinegar, onions, carrots, S&P, and a bit of sugar. Not as fattening as mayo."
"I have made this for years except my Mom and I add a cucumber and about 2 tomatoes."
"This definetely sounds good with the lemon juice being added but I'm going to cut time and buy pre-shredded slaw with carrots just to try it."
"I've been making this dressing for cole slaw for years, I now leave the seeds out because of diverticulitis. I also put it on lettuce salads. Delicious"
"I've been making my cole slaw with lemon for over 20 years! Never added sugar, mustard seed, celery seed. But will definitely give it a try!"
"I make my cole slaw like this plus I add a handfull of sultanas. It always goes well at a BBQ or outdoor lunch."
"This is delicious. I did use Miracle Whip rather than mayo and since I didn't have a lemon on hand, I used a packet of True Lemon....very very good!"
"I love the lemony taste this slaw has."
"I love me some coleslaw and this was no exception. The lemon juice is a new ingredient for me to use in coleslaw, but it really adds to the taste withouty tasting "lemony". I'm also not crazy about green pepper, but I had a little one out of the garden to use, and I would do it again. Follow the recipe exactly and you will certainly have a winner."
