Reviews forClassic Creamy Coleslaw
"The garlic powder makes all the difference in this recipe. This is the best colelsaw reipe I have ever found. I do use a bag of coleslaw mix to start and have used cider vinegar sometimes to give it a little more flavor."
"This is truly a great recipe. After it sits so the flavors meld and the cole slaw softens, it may be a little juicy. Just strain as much of the excess sauce as you prefer. Or start with less. I cut the recipe in half and use a bag of pre-shredded cole slaw mix you can pick up at any grocery."
