I trippled this recipe, but cut back some on the vinegar for a church dinner. I got so many compliments on it, too. Some thought I bought it at the stores deli section. It was a very easy recipe to make...definetly " a keeper"!

Way too sweet. If I make it again, I'm going to use less sugar. I bought a bag of pre-shredded coleslaw instead of all that chopping, which made it so much easier and quicker. My husband didn't like it.

Now this is cole slaw. This is what I have been looking for in a slaw. And so easy too.

I love this recipe. Simple coleslaw that is sweet without being sickly. Carrot is essential to coleslaw as far as I am concerned. I usually add 1 teaspoon of good dijon mustard to the dressing which gives it a great kick to complement the sweet vinegar dressing. A keeper.

This was very good slaw. I cut the recipie in half and eyeballed the amounts of mayo, vinegar and sugar I put in until it tasted right to me. In addition to the dry onion flakes, I added a few pinches of paprika and some dijon mustard. A little salt and a generous amount of black pepper finished it up. My husband and kids loved it. It went great with out Italian Sausage sandwiches. Thanks for the recipie, Denise!

I cut the vinegar and the sugar in half, added lots of black pepper, and it turned out just like MOMS! Great recipe!

The recipe called for a lot of vinegar. It made a pretty runny coleslaw. The flavor was wonderful though. A very good coleslaw.
