cabbage, thinly sliced
mayonnaise, or more to taste
OMG!!!! This is by far the Best tasting Coleslaw Recipe I've ever tried!!!! Very simple. We ate it as soon as I made this. It wasn't even chilled. Thank You Catherine.
Who uses mayonnaise in a traditional German dish? Might as well go buy your kraut salat at 7-11. White trash recipes are not the same as Good recipes. Try harder please! It's too good to ruin in this way.
I haven't actually tried this recipe but it sounds just about exactly like my family's recipe. (My family is German, Irish, and Czech and the recipe likely came from the German and Irish side of the family.) I'm not sure if the recipe author forgot to write this step but we always shred the cabbage and salt it and let it wilt before adding the dressing. We've tweaked it slightly but the flavor remains constant. We now use partially non-fat yogurt to save on calories and the rest mayo. Another idea is that if seeds present an annoyance to perhaps folks with braces or people fussy about their teeth there is such a thing as ground celery seed that is available and we now use that every time we make coleslaw. If ground celery seed is unavailable you could always grind the seed yourself in a coffee grinder dedicated to spices alone.
yummy so very good, creamy and full of flavor. I used bagged coslaw with carrots. So happy with the results of this recipe.
I made with 2 packets stevia instead of sugar, and with cumin seeds instead of celery seeds, using bagged cole slaw mix. Excellent.
Great coleslaw. Made it as written except added some shredded carrots as well for color. I like the simple list of ingredients.
I used bagged slaw mix, and made this exactly as written. I let it chill for about 2 hrs. It was wonderful, so good I ate the whole bag at dinner. I would not change a thing
Easy, quick and good. The kids liked it.

This irresistible coleslaw is more tart and tangy than creamy.
A creamy, tangy, vintage slaw handed down through the generations.
Sweet, juicy peaches make this spicy slaw the perfect summer side.
