A neighbor asked me if I'd ever had dill pickle coleslaw, said his grandmother made it when he was small and it was the only slaw he'd eat back then - & none of his relatives had the recipe. I'd never heard of it [not a dill pickle fan particularly] but went looking and found this recipe. Made it to surprise him, also shared some w/other friends, & everyone thought it was very good - I even thought it was ok, and for me that's saying a lot! I only keep dried milk on hand, but subbed some plain Greek yogurt & a little extra pickle juice, tasted quite good. I did add 1/2 tsp celery seed, as I really like it in slaw, and it fit right in. I'll be making this again - most likely frequently - for carry-in dinners and such; thank you so much for the recipe!

This is the only cole slaw my kids will eat! I made this cole-slaw several years ago, and they haven't eaten any other cole slaw since then. I have brought it to church pot-lucks and gotten many requests for the recipe. It's a keeper!

This recipe is easy to make and as the other reviewer stated you probably have everything in your kitchen. I did like the flavour of the salad even though it is different from most coleslaws, but my mom who also tried it, liked it, but prefers a coleslaw without pickles.

Since I love dill pickles and always have them at hand, I made this recipe for a family bbq. Everyone loved the coleslaw, even my 8 year old niece. The only suggestion I could possibly have is to add more pickles, since I love them!!!
