I loved the zip that this dressing has! A traditional, creamy coleslaw with a kick. Unfortunately, I wasn't paying attention to the ounces on my coleslaw mix (only 16 oz) so it was a bit heavy on the dressing, but otherwise fantastic. I will definitely be making this again.

This was definitely a zippier coleslaw than we are used to, but, very tasty! We really liked the slight "heat" you get from the horseradish. It was a tad too tart for our taste. I will make again, but, add a little more sugar next time.

This coleslaw is delicious. The horseradish gives it an extra oomph. Not too runny but just creamy enough.

Used this recipe for the dressing only...dropped the horseradish for personal preference and used cider vinegar instead of! And, this is coming from someone who is not a fan of coleslaw.

I loved this recipe and so did my friends, now they want the recipe in fact. I added a heaping tbsp of horseradish to add a bit more of a zip and it was fine. I also used 4 cups of shredded slaw..the dressing can cover alot I found. Love it....

I liked it. I didn't have horseradish, but put in everything else and it was good. It only took a few minutes to make, too..

I've made this several times and it's a favorite! I add extra horseradish but that's the only change. It really needs a least an hour or two in the frig for the flavors to mix fully
