This simple slaw tastes best when it's refrigerated for at least one hour. The mixture seems to get creamier as it sits. —Michelle Gauer, Spicer, Minnesota

"Very good, great flavor. I used fresh cabbage and carrots instead of coleslaw mix."

"My husband and I love this recipe and I'm not crazy about coleslaw! I didn't add the red peppers and used two 16 ounce bags instead of the 14 ounce and it turned out perfect!"

"This was very good. I made half a recipe with 1 16oz bag of slaw mix. For that quantity, I could have added a bit more salt. Dressing was light without compromising flavor."

"I'm a coleslaw snob, and this one definitely makes the cut! I didn't have season salt so used onion salt, garlic powder, paprika and a little original Mrs. Dash. #newfavorite"

"This was so, so, so, so, so good! I have always been a fan of KFC slaw, but I think this one is better! And I loved how easy it was to put together."

"I have tried many slaw recipes trying to find one I like, I am so happy I found this one! It is my keeper, finally the search is over. It isn't overly sweet or tangy, a perfect balance! I halved the recipe for our family and for once I'm actually looking forward to the leftovers."

"This was quite a hit with the family. The only change I made was to use regular vinegar instead of cider vinegar. Very tasty!"
