I have several coleslaw recipes that I make on a regular basis, but this is by far my husband's favorite. It is a five-star recipe as is, but sometimes I make minor changes according to our preferences or what I have on hand. I use equal amounts of cider vinegar and sugar (1/3 cup of each), sometimes I add finely minced parsley, and sometimes I omit the red bell pepper or add grated carrots. Thank you for the recipe.

The coleslaw, as written, was a bit sweet for our taste, but a great texture, and with a few changes it worked well in the meal. I added a bit more salt and vinegar, and a splash of Melinda's hot sauce. If I were making it for the next day, I'd probably use dry minced onions instead of fresh onion -- it has fewer active enzymes, so it doesn't develop sulfur smells as fast.

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 is a great basic cole slaw recipe. This is very simple to the one my Grandma made. You can't go wrong with it.

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!
