Recipe by  

"Better than that famous chicken restaurant chain, I promise. Mix together and pour over grated or diced cabbage. Keeps in the fridge for several weeks because of the vinegar."

Very good! I found it to taste best when freshly made. It was still very good when chilled but it will lose some of that crunch.

Didn't like the flavor at all! Was disappointed.

Great recipe. Nice and simple. I had to make a smaller batch and the mustard is a nice touch.

I used the available option to change serving size to 6. I followed the directions and changed nothing (except the serving size), and it is just right for the tastebuds in my family. I placed the dressing in a large mixing bowl. I had a whole head of cabbage to work with, so I shredded the whole head, and added cabbage to the dressing in the bowl till it suited my taste. I refrigerated the slaw for several hours, and checked for "soupiness". The dressing was a little runnier than before, which is quite normal for slaw dressing made at home, so I added more shredded cabbage. As a note: salt and sugar break down the cellular walls in fresh produce, and make stuff begin to "weep". This is well noticed when you sprinkle fresh strawberries with sugar, or fresh cucumbers with salt. So, yes, the sugar and the salt make the cabbage "weepy", but this is normal for coleslaw. This is a great recipe for homemade slaw dressing.

This is Fabulous!! Tastes so much like "famous chicken fast food" slaw dressing. I adjusted servings for four - only used a heaping 1/4 cup mayo making this very economical - was enough for medium size cabbage, carrots, red onion slaw. Didn't have any celery seed - didn't miss it either! Thanks for sharing!

Easy, quick & all ingredients on hand. Reduced recipe to 1 1/2 T sugar, 1 T cider vinegar, 1/3 c mayo (maybe more), 1 t mustard (more to taste), 1 t celery seed and kosher salt to taste.

Wasn't what I expected but it was good - a little too sweet for my taste. Makes a very large batch.

A little runny. Taste great. I cut it in half. Will keep this one but with a bit more mayo.
