"Made this for a potluck I was going to. It was so creamy, and delicious with just the right of spice. I used fresh cabbage and carrots instead of the coleslaw mix."

"I used Splenda baking for the sugar. My fiance is a type 1 diabetic and I try to sugar substitutes when I can. He loves coleslaw and he gets so excited when I make this! I keep the dressing and slaw mix separate and mix it up when we are ready to eat, keeps it crunchy!"

"Very simple and a nice blend of flavors, doesn't even taste like a lightened up version. I'm always looking for ways to lighten up favorite foods and although this one seemed obvious, the seasonings must be the secret to making it flavorful."

"Will definitely make this again. Taste not quite as bold as high-calorie version but definitely very good. And only 2 poits on Weight Watchers."

"I was really excited to try this recipe, but was a little let down. It's good, but it's missing something. It was definitely better the second day, but still missing something."

"I don't know if it's the season salt or the dry mustard, but this is just about the tastiest coleslaw I've ever had! I love it!"

"The best coleslaw! The longer it sits the creamer it gets."

"I just made this coleslaw and I really like the flavor. Must be the dry mustard-but it has a little zip, which I like."
