"What kind of vinegar? The only vinegar my German speaking grandmothers had was cider vinegar. I am a great-grandma, so that was a long time ago. Sehr gut."

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jun. 1, 2010

"I made this yesterday for a friend who has intolerance to many foods. Not only did she love it, all 20 people that were at my house raved about it. It was so easy to make! I let it sit for about 2 hours before serving which really helped the flavors meld. The only comment I have, if you use already chopped cole slaw mix, use 2 bags. I had to discard some of the oil mixture. Thank you!"
