MY REVIEW
Reviewed Aug. 15, 2015

"I have never been a coleslaw lover. But this sounded interesting. I loved it. My husband also loved it. It stays crunchy for several days. I did cut it down because it was only 2 of us, and I left out the green pepper, because I don't like that flavor. But I will be making this again."

"A nice change!"

"Very tasty and crunchy. I don't miss the full fat version of Miracle Whip at all. I used only one onion and that flavor still comes through. I also omitted the water chestnuts for my husband, but it still has a nice crunchy texture."

"A wonderful tangy salad! I love salads using Miracle Whip as they are so much more flavourful than mayonnaise. The crunch of the water chestnuts is wonderful. I use tri-colour coleslaw and leave out the green peppers as I dont like them."

"I used Best Foods Mayonaise instead of Miracle Whip, and I really love the salad. My husband doesn't like macaroni salad and he would still rate it a 4. Took it camping and it was just as good on day 4."
