Recipe Note


Test Kitchen Tips

  • Don't love Miracle Whip? Use mayonnaise instead.
  • Kool factoid: The term "coleslaw" is derived from the Dutch word "koolsla," literally translated as "cabbage salad." The term has evolved to refer to many types of crunchy, shredded-vegetable salads that hold up well after being dressed.

    "I like both coleslaw and macaroni salad but I thought this might be really odd to taste. I added green onion and red onion instead of onion. I omitted the green pepper and water chestnuts. I added 2 chopped fine hard boiled eggs to it. In the end I also sprinkled a bit of turmeric to it. This is absolutely delicious! I love it, thanks for the recipe, even if I made it my own. Try it, its sooooo good!"

    "I served this for 4th of July yesterday. I thought I'd like it better than I did. It made a lot, which was a plus, but it was really missing something in the flavor. I found it unappealing and wished I'd served something else. Inhad 12 people for dinner; people ate it-- I had half a bowl left over. My husband said it was okay, and that he liked it well enough, but I didn't notice anyone really excited about it. Too bad. It sounded like something I'd like.

    Perhaps I'd like it with a different dressing. I think the dressing was a deal breaker for me. Maybe I'll try it again but use a favorite coleslaw dressing on it instead. Also, I wasn't crazy about the chestnuts. If I do it again, I'll use chopped jicama instead."

    "Edit: made with miracle whip light. Was much better. Especially the next day.

    This looks and sounds unappetizing, but intrigued by the numerous 5 star reviews, I went ahead and made it. I only had low fat mayo (no miracle whip), so I used that. I only put one onion in because it looked like a lot, but might add half or all of the second one.
    I was expecting it to taste like coleslaw AND macaroni salad. I think it pretty much tastes like coleslaw with a bit of pasta added. It makes a ton."

    "This is an AWESOME recipe, and I look forward to making it again. I did use regular mayonnaise, and red wine vinegar instead of regular vinegar. I also omitted the salt, it wans't missed. My husband liked the way it complimented the honey sauced chicken nuggets, and helped us get out of the winter doldrums. My daughter normally doesn't like the veggies listed, but with them being finely chopped in the food processor, she never even noticed them, and had 2 helpings! LOL! Plan on passing this recipe along to my sisters and also my best friend for her daughter's high school graduation party."
