I have been using this "recipe" for a couple years now. Obviously it is easy and people seem to like it. Sure makes throwing a party easier. Really good for a summer picnic. I use 2 bags of slaw per jar of dressing and then it isn't so runny.

Would score 5 for simplicity, but frankly this store-bought dressing is fairly ordinary. I can make a tastier dressing from scratch in less than 15 minutes!

I've been using Marzetti Slaw Dressing for years. I'm a nut for the entire Marzetti's line. I learned about it at their restaurant in Ohio. If you ever get a chance, it the greatest restaurant. Go hungry, that is if it's still there, cause it's been years. On the slaw I add a couple tablespoons of caraway seed, some shaved carrots for a little sweetness and diced onion for a little punch. I get lots of compliments on that combination.

Marzetti Slaw Dressing makes the best cole slaw. I also add carrots, onions and some celery salt to my cabbage.

Marzettis dressing makes the absolute best cole slaw. I have been making this for years, except I use the bagged Dole cole slaw mix with the Marzettis. That's all -- just Marzettis and bagged slaw. Can't get any easier! I have been asked several times to bring this to dinners at church. For a crowd I usually use about 5 bags of slaw mix to 3 bottles dressing. It is so easy and yet so good. It's the only slaw my husband and I really like. Some of the ladies at church have asked me for the "recipe" and I laugh when I tell them what it is!

I made this to go with Barbecue sandwiches and it hit he spot! I used the tri-blend bag of cabbage that had carrots and white and red cabbage and added a splash of white vinegar, 2 Tbs of sugar and some celery seed. Delicious!!! Thanks!

Marzetti's dressing is the best...I've tried to make a lot of slaw dressings from scratch, but just go back to theirs. I use 2 pkgs of diced cabbage w/carrots, add a little onion, either green or white, and add celery seed, salt and pepper. Get compliments every time!

I've used this for years. They make a "Lite" version, which is harder to find but as good as the original. I add carrots and red cabbage, some celery seed (not salt) and a splash of white vinegar, because we like ours tangy. I've heard this dressing makes great deviled eggs, too!
