Spectacular Overnight Slaw Recipe

Publisher Photo
To come up with this dish, I used a number of different recipes, plus some ideas of my own. It's great for a potluck because it's made the night before and the flavor keeps getting better. Whenever I serve it, I'm inundated with recipe requests. —Ruth Lovett, Bay City, Texas

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Oct. 17, 2014

"I am a self-proclaimed coleslaw connoisseur, and while this is very, very good, I wouldn't call it spectacular. It stayed very crisp even after pouring on the boiling-hot dressing. Although it's very tasty, it's not one of my favorite slaws. I did leave out the green olives as I don't care for them. Don't let my review stop you from trying this one though!"

"A very tasty alternative to slaw with mayo. It truly does get better overnight. Something about the mix of veggies causes the peppers and onion to NOT repeat on me.!!"
