My family LOVES cole slaw. We like creamy kind, vinegar based, sweet slaws and this one! Looking for a faceless recipe for the ‘February 2013 Faceless Frenzy’ I found that I had this saved in my recipe box. I also had the personal version before it became published. I mixed the dressing up in the morning so the flavors could blend all day. I poured the dressing on about an hour before serving, and it is delicious. I used a blend of half cabbage and half broccoli slaw. The dressing is so good that my family commented that they would like it as a salad dressing. I liked that the leftovers didn’t get soggy and were great packed in lunches the next day. Elle, I’m thrilled to be the first to review and photograph your recipe. It most definitely will be made in this house, again and again. :o)

this is pretty colorless. i would add red cabbage and shredded carrots and maybe even some dried cranberries and dried dill weed. this really needs a bit of imagination.

My parents lived in Junction City, Ks for many years and a trip to the Brookville Hotel was always a welcome family tradition. My family has made this cole slaw for years and it's always just as good as the first time we had it--Lorraine R

This is quite good, and I can't even stand cabbage! I needed to use up the rest of the head I bought for St. Patrick's Day, and the man loves coleslaw, so I decided to try this. He really enjoyed it, and I was shocked that I liked it as well :)

This is absolutely delicious! I love the creamy, sweet and sour taste of it. It reminds me so much of my very favorite coleslaw, made by a very famous Colonel who also made great fried chicken! I'm so glad I came across this recipe...I know our family will be eating a lot more cabbage salad because of it! Thank you so much for sharing this winner!

YESSS! This recipe is to die for! I make a slaw similar with pineapple and my husband only likes that but I would gladly trade that one for the Brookville recipe. When we go to the Brookville restaurant I mainly fill up on the Slaw. Thanks for the recipe.

Our family LOVES this recipe. All year round, it is a hit and so very easy. The cream gives it a smooth buttery taste along with the snap of the vinegar and sweetness of the sugar. Leftovers are rare but when we do have some, my husband always includes it in his lunch the next day.

We loved it. Doesn't need anything but cabbage but you can add what ever you enjoy
