Creamy Coleslaw

For me, this is the best coleslaw recipe because a package of shredded cabbage and carrots really cuts down on prep time. This creamy coleslaw recipe is great for potlucks or to serve to your family on a busy weeknight. —Renee Endress, Galva, Illinois

      yum, yum, yummy! Although this is not great as a left-over so I would recommend figuring out how much your family will eat in one setting and adjusting amounts accordingly. Also, I only had red cabbage ready in the garden so I used that. Thanks for sharing!

      Sounds good, the ground mustard & celery salt sound interesting, might have to give this a try. We have used a KFC clone for years & you would be very hard pressed to tell the difference between it & the real thing.

      How can someone rate 1 star when they're lactose intolerant and can't fix the recipe? Anyway...Love this recipe! Thank you for the submission! And I did sneak a little granny smith apple in as one of the Kitchen Tips and everyone LOVED it!

      I used this recipe exactly as is and we loved this side dish for the 4th of July Stay-at-Home celebration. I bought pre-packaged cabbage/carrot mix but this homemade coleslaw dressing really put it over the top. I will definitely make this a summer family staple dish.

      Didn't bonniesunshine read that a store bought bag of Cole slaw was used? It usually has carrots in it!

      This was just to sweet for my taste and I only added a Tbsp of sugar. Started over and deleted the sugar and added lime juice for some tang. It tasted great after those adjustments.

      Odd. Pic shows carrots but not mentioned in recipe ingredients?
