This tastes just like the slaw served at our favorite barbecue restaurant! The celery seed is a nice addition. Will definitely make this again.

This was delicious! Perfect side with Taste of Home's Best Barbecue Beef Sandwiches. Would be great for any warm weather cookout! I added some extra carrot for sweetness. Will definitely make again!

I skinnied it down with skim milk, light mayo, and sugar/stevia blend. It was a hit! Served with slow cooker BBQ pulled chicken.

This is a great basic recipe for creamy coleslaw! It is best to make at least 15 minutes before serving so the flavors can all mingle. I used cider vinegar, real mayo, and celery salt (didn't have celery seed in the cabinet). Served it on the Shredded Venison sandwiches that are also from Taste of Home. You should all try them too, it's a delicious BBQ recipe that would work with pretty much any protein (not just venison)!

I used a pre-shredded cole slaw bag mix for a time-saver. Thought the taste improved with sitting overnight in the frig. Great recipe!

I used Miracle Whip instead of Mayonnaise - it tastes great! Will definitely make again.

Best cole slaw I've ever had. Even my son who hates vegetables liked it and kept asking for more. Super simple and quick to prepare on a hot summer day.

This recipe was just missing something. I just couldn't figure out what it was. It was too bland tasting though. I'll be looking for another slaw recipe when ready to make some again.
