Reviews for Nine-Day Coleslaw
"Very good, dressing has a very good sweet taste . It would great served on a BBQ sandwich!"
"This is a wonderful salad. My total sugar was 11-2 cups and l added one finely grated carrot. I'm amazed this has no reviews, 20 years after it was first published. It's a keeper. Janet FE"
