Sweet 'n' Creamy Coleslaw Recipe

Sweet 'n' Creamy Coleslaw Recipe

My grandmother taught me how to make the dressing for this coleslaw when I was very young. It's not too tart and not too sweet. Sometimes I make 8 gallon jars a week at the restaurant where I work! It gets lots of compliments. -Denise Elder, Hanover, Ontario
