  • “Tasted like good old fashioned coleslaw. I like it a little watery, so I added extra rice vinegar. I also used a red onion–to add a little more heat–and skipped the green pepper. It was great!”

  • “Tasty and colorful.I’m glad to see that others like coleslaw with onions and peppers.I used the preshredded cabbage and carrot mixture to save time.I didn’t measure the mayonnaise, but I’m certain that I used a bit extra than listed. Great coleslaw; thanx!”
