Use tarragon vinegar and this becomes 5 stars and beyond. You won't believe the difference this small change makes. Like many I omitted the olives.

No olives please. No sugar. I use sugar sub or agave. Agave is perfect for this recipe.

Love this slaw and have been making it for years. Just one caveat- some prepackaged slaw mixes use purple cabbage as an ingredient. Your slaw will turn a lovely shade of pink if kept more than one day with purple slaw in it. I don't like olives so have never used them. No one has ever said it would be better with olives. Just sayin'...

Great! Didn't use the olives and put in about half a sweet red pepper I had in the fridge otherwise made just as recipe calls for. Mayonnaise gets too runny for my taste and worry about it on picnics. Better leftover with nearly everything except waffles will most definitely make this again!

My mother used to make this (without the olives) and it was awesome! And the pre-packaged slaw? Coming from a stroke survivor who lost the use of an arm, it is fine. If you can find it without carrots get it that way. It's better without the carrots. Buying pre-packaged isn't always about laziness. ;) :) Just a reminder....... :)

I only gave it 4 stars because I do not like olives in my slaw either... on the side yes but not in. Try pear infused white wine vinegar and cut down some of the sugar. As for prepackaged slaw, of course you can use, but I would not recommend, the difference is quite noticeable and it does not take long to shred cabbage and I do it with a hand shredder (too lazy to get out the food processor...;-) )

Made this for a family get together and everyone liked it. It was fresh and light. I did let my dressing cool some before I poured it on the vegetable. Call me crazy.
