"This recipe used to be printed on the Old Bay® cans, but it was removed a decade or more ago; it is very different than the one on the current Old Bay website. I much prefer this one and even today occasionally see a posting from someone looking for the old recipe from the Old Bay can. Well, here it is!"

seafood seasoning (such as Old Bay®)
chopped green bell pepper
Excellent recipe! I really thought that the Old Bay would overpower it but it didn't. I omitted the bell pepper and onion and it turned out great.
No one in my family liked this at all. The taste was just terrible for us.
I really liked this coleslaw. I dont make it much, because I have to adjust the sugar so much until it isnt as sweet as candy. This one was great with only 2 tsp. I also really liked the addition of the Old Bay seasoning. I had the garlic and herb flavored one and that worked fine. For ease I used a 10oz, un-measured bag of shredded cabbage from Trader Joes. I also used pre-shredded carrots I always have on hand anyhow. I minced the onion and blended with the vegetables I kept separate from the dressing until serving. I tried some with and without the green peppers. I much liked it without. The green peppers sort of make it taste different than classic coleslaw. I would make this again for a family bbq. Only change is, I would probably double it as this only makes about 6 servings. I would also leave out the green pepper and mix in the dressing, again, right before serving. Ty!
Thanks so much!
I am not a huge coleslaw fan, but am learning to eat it. This was good and the Old Bay made it a little different. I halved the recipe and there was too much dressing, so that's something to keep in mind next time.
Oh, this WILL be my go-to slaw recipe. Love this! Wonderful with any seafood or any meats.
The Old Bay seasoning is subtle, but certainly recognizable. Nice option for coleslaw, we liked it!
Being from the east coast Old Bay is something I grew up with. When I made this coleslaw OMG ! For those who don't care for bell pepper, try using celery instead. I use lemon juice instead of vinegar sometimes to switch it up. Add some shrimp or crab and it's completely over the top. Thanks for posting
