Year-round, our family always goes for this crisp, refreshing salad. With a tangy vinegar and oil dressing., it has wonderful homemade flavor. When Mom made it years ago for our family of seven, it was rare to have leftovers.

"This is a great vinegar-based coleslaw dressing - nice variation from the creamy coleslaw dressing."

"This is my go to slaw. Like another poster, I half the dressing. I use splenda in place of the sugar to make it a little more blood sugar friendly. Nobody can tell the difference."

MY REVIEW
Reviewed May. 26, 2012

"The dressing is a very refreshing change from mayo-based coleslaw dressing, and this keeps very well in the refrigerator. I halved the dressing ingredients, which made the perfect amount of dressing for a bag of coleslaw mix."

"I used 1/2 the oil and sugar. I used olive oil and cider vinegar because that is all I had. It tastes pretty good. I will make it again."
