    This is good! I, too, added green pepper slices and used less onion, but the result was still delicious. This is a great time saver!

    I had used a green pepper, and 1 sweet white onion, sliced. I didn't use 4 mild white onions since I didn't have them on hand. Everything else was kept as recipe directed! This is a delicious recipe!

    I have never been able to make a coleslaw dressing that tasted good. So, my dressing was "Hidden Valley" but never again. We absolutely LOVED it. I used the "ready made slaw in the bag" which the dressing is the right amount for this. I used green onions for that's what I had. Fantastic and thanks for sharing your recipe.

    Even my husband liked this one! Next time I will try half celery seed/half celery salt b/c the celery taste seemed strong.
