I was looking for a good coleslaw recipe that I could modify somewhat since I live in Costa Rica, in a small town in the middle of the rainforest, and some ingredients are very hard to find and/or hard to keep on hand. So here are my modifications (for 1/2 recipe): used 1 generous Tablespoon of yogurt instead of milk and buttermilk, added no sugar, used the juice of 1 small lemon and 1 tablespoon of apple cider vinegar, had to add a bit more mayo. Also added a bit of garlic and more (fresh ground) pepper than called for (I like it spicy). I divided the result into 2 portions. One I left "plain" and other I added fresh pineapple cut into bits and raisins (sort of "sometimes you feel like a nut, sometimes you don't" options). HAD to taste them before I refrigerated - YUM! I love recipes that can stand alone OR be modified! Only gave it a '4' since I had to substitute but mine were definitely a '5' in taste - both of them!
