MY REVIEW
Reviewed Mar. 28, 2015

"Loved the if this salad, and the ingredients, but there just wasn't enough flavor for me. I will try it again, but next time I will add the same ingredients I use when I make cole slaw and see if that helps. It needed more "tang"."

"Made with Hellmann's mayo. Our family does not care for Miracle Whip at all. Used tarragon vinegar so it had that KFC coleslaw flavor. That is what tipped the scale at our large family gathering."
