MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jun. 20, 2013

This may be the best cole slaw I've ever made. I used a bag of coleslaw mix. Also, I just mixed the dressing ingredients together (I did not use a blender). Wonderful!

my family loves this quick homemade slaw! I also use a pre-shredded bag of coleslaw & it turns out perfect everytime!!

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jan. 1, 2010

I've used this recipe this it was published in 1996 and love it. It always turns out the same. However, to make it even easier I use a bag of already prepared coleslaw instead of shredding it myself. It saves so much time.
