    My problem with this slaw may have been my own taste. I just didn't think there was enough "sauce" for 9 to 12 pounds of shredded cabbage with 4 lbs of apples. I thought the dressing for the slaw was wonderful so...I tried again and used the same measurements for the dressing but cut my slaw down to 2 heads of cabbage and 3 lbs of apples. I also only used 2 1/2 cartons of sour cream. Sorry to change this so much but I thought it was dry as did my family and...I'm an experimenter too. Love the apples added.
