This Cole Slaw is so good. My family and I don't care for bell pepper and onions in our slaw, so I left them out and it was still scrumptious. Here is a little tip I heard about from a chef on the cable food network. As you know all veggies have quite a bit of water so if you but the cabbage in a colander and sprinkle a little salt over it. It will remove the excess water from the cabbage. This process takes about 30 minutes to an hour but it gives you a very crisp cabbage and the slaw is not watery.

This was just okay, I did find it a bit on the sweet side and also I needed to double the ingredients for the dressing.

This cole slaw is soooo good, I followed the recipe almost exactly, the only thing I did differently was to put a tablespoon of lemon juice on the apples while I chopped up the rest of the ingriedients, I did this the first time I made the salad, I didn't do it the second time and the apples turned brown after 2 days. I still added the lemon juice that the recipe calls for.

This is an absolutely awesome recipe. So simple and easy to throw together. For a change of pace, I occasionally throw in pecans or sunflower seeds for a little something different... This has joined a list of favorites in our household!

This recipe was fantastic. It's probably the best slaw I've ever had. I only used 1/4 cup of brown sugar and added a couple Tbl. of cider vinegar in addition to the lemon juice. Thanks for the recipe Aunt Mamie.

This is a fantastic recipe! I added 1 tsp. vinegar to the mayo mix and topped the slaw off with dried crandberries and sliced almonds. My son had about 4 helpings and said be sure to keep the recipe for this one! I thought about adding some salad shrimp or chunks of chicken next time and make it a meal!

This recipe is excellent. I've made it several times and am ALWAYS asked to bring it to family functions. I always buy a pre-shredded cabbage/carrot mixture to make prep easier and also change up the apples from time to time (try Fuji or Gala, you must keep the granny smith though for the tartness). I skip the red pepper and sometimes add a little extra dressing. This is WONDERFUL and keeps for several days. Thanks so much for a GREAT recipe, Aunt Mamie!!

Very refreshing! This recipe is so versatile, you can add many crunchy fruits and veggies to it. I added fresh pineapple slices to mine, and a little bit of green onions. I love coleslaw and find this one to have a good balance of creaminess, sweetness and tanginess. Will definately make again.
