Garden Coleslaw

As soon as the first head of cabbage was barely big enough to harvest, Mom made this refreshing slaw. We kids shredded the cabbage while Mom whipped up the delicious, sweet cream dressing. —Ginny Werkmeister, Tilden NE

    Cole was good, but I have other recipes I prefer. More of a crisp type coleslaw. My mother-in-law's has a similar recipe except she adds tomatoes.

    This was very quick and easy to make. I made it early in the day and refrigerated it so the flavors blended. I will be making it again.

    Somehow we just didn't find this coleslaw as great as indicated it would be. Disappointed.

    Oh my goodness!! This is so light and delicious!! I added 1/3 cup chopped red pepper to give it a bit more color, and overall, the salad is delish! Will definitely make again!

    I have made this my go to coleslaw recipe. Its different then your average slaw dressing but I like this much better. The only change I make is adding a little more cream then the recipe calls for (to taste) just because I like mine to have less of a mayonnaise flavor. Just a person preference. Recipe is great as is.
