Nine-Day Coleslaw

This easy coleslaw is great because it lasts refrigerated so long. The longer you let it marinate, the better it tastes.—Mildred Iglehart, Calhoun, Kentucky

    This is a wonderful salad. My total sugar was 11-2 cups and l added one finely grated carrot. I'm amazed this has no reviews, 20 years after it was first published. It's a keeper. Janet FE
