"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."

"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."

"This is a GREAT coleslaw. Quite different from the traditional and so easy to make. I used lite mayo and would probably add a little more onion and green pepper next time."
