  • Reviews

  • “I mmade the slaw with all of the ingredients and my husband would not eat it. I did not like it that much either. Then I omitted mustard, ketchup, Worcestershire sauce and onions. My husband and I liked a lot better, however we both like my original cole slaw better.Thanks for your wonderful recipe and cooking site. I give recipezaar 10 stars.Nancy”

  • “I’m giving this recipe a 5 star rating but note that this is NOT your grandma’s cole slaw. Don’t expect a mild, milky, white cole slaw. This recipe makes a light brown slaw, to begin with- and it’s tangy….savory….full-flavored. Almost spicy. I substituted finely minced celery for the bell pepper and I also added a grated carrot. I loved it. It had lots of verve and kick. Try it if you’re in the mood for a DIFFERENT cole slaw. Yum!”

  • “I don’t care for all the different peppers so just used half of a green pepper and added diced celery.This recipe is awesome but like any slaw make sure you season it well with salt and pepper.Thanks Carla it is great and everyone loved it.”

  • “This is great. I use Tabasco Habanero flavored hot sauce (a little more than a tablespoon), one red bell pepper, and one large chopped red onion. This is great served with pulled pork sandwiches or any other BBQ’d food!”

  • “wow made this for the 4th of July and was it ever a success, definitely not your mother’s cole slaw. every one loved the recipe and begged for a copy. a definite keeper”
