"I did not care for this at all. A friend tried it as well, and she did not like it either."

"I didn't have seafood seasoning so used a mixture of pepper, onion powder, paprika, garlic powder and basil."

"I have made this slaw several times as an alternative to the traditional mayo-based kind. I get lots of comments each time I fix it -- everyone seems to like it a lot. I know I do!"
