    I made this to go along with some meatloaf and polenta. We thought it was great. I was looking for a good slaw recipe that has a punch of flavor without being drowned in mayo. I think this is the one. I used a spicy chile whole grain mustard and I think that's what I liked about it so much. I will definitely experiment with more mustards! Make sure you measure your cabbage after shredding. I must have had a small one because I needed more than 1/2. I used red cabbage so the whole slaw would be purple.

    I made this for a neighborhood BBQ last year and had requests to bring it again this year. It was easy to make and was a big hit.

    I made this recipe as directed-no changes. I served it with GI Joes (soy crumbles version of sloppy joes) also from the CL website and baked chips. The tangy taste of the cole slaw really complimented the chili seasoning in the GI Joes. A nice side dish for an every day meal. My daughter and I agreed this cole slaw deserved a five star rating and we will make it again.

    After years of searching, my coleslaw search is over. My husband is not a huge fan of mayo, so the addition of mustard to this recipe helps disguise the taste. I skip the shredding and just use a ready-made bag of coleslaw mix. I also mix up the vinegar a little by adding half apple cider and half white vinegar. The slaw benefits from some time in the fridge.

    I hate coleslaw and love this. I doubled the dressing. I'm going to serve with spice-rubbed pork tenderloin with mustard barbecue sauce. Today I shredded some cooked chicken and heated with the bbq sauce from the other recipe and served on a bun with the slaw on top. It's better than anything I've had at a restaurant and it screams summer.

    Recipe would be very good without the onion or with about 1/4 c. Found the onion completely overpowered the other ingredients. Dressing was very good! Will try again without onion.

    I have made this a few times and it always is well received. Love the tangyness. Definitely need to measure the shredded cabbage since they are different sizes. Added a bit more mayo last time and will try it with some red cabbage next. Will also experiment with different mustards!

    We don't like a lot mayo on our slaw - so this one was a real treat. We served it with Slow-Roasted Pulled Pork (Dec 2009).

    This is now "My" Coleslaw recipe! Anyone who doesn't normally like coleslaw loves this! Perfect combo of vinegar and mayo to satisfy the old debate of vinegar or mayo based slaw is best. This with the Spice-Rubbed Pork Tenderloin with Mustard Barbecue Sauce is my go to recipe for company in the summer and I always make this for the family at the beach. Doubles very easy for large groups.

    This is very easy and very tasty. For folks who enjoy slaw that is NOT swimming in mayo, this will certainly be a hit. I've served this at cook-out several times and I always get compliments, which is testament enough, because honestly, how often does a simple dish of slaw garner raves? This is one of my routine go-to recipes for simple side dishes, especially burgers and barbecue.

    This coleslaw is fabulous. The whole grain mustard really makes the slaw. I like the combination of the white wine vinegar and just a little mayo. It was a hit in our house.

    Easy and delicious. A staple at any BBQ or picnic.

    How easy is to easy? This may be it! Really good. I would think that the whole-grain mustard is a must. Thank God the coleslaw was so good, because the main course was a flop. A real make-again-because-it-is-so-easy-and-good.

    Loved this! Tangy and a tad sweet...perfect! And not laden w/ mayo. You feel good after eating it, not like you seed to go for a run!

    I have been making this recipe since it came out in the 2008 issue. It is the only one I use and I get rave reviews every time I make it. My son even called me from Texas for the recipe so he could take it to a BBQ bash. It was a huge hit there too!

    If you're looking for more of a tangy coleslaw versus a creamy one, this one is perfect, saves a lot of fat and calories as well. I used rice wine vinegar and prepackaged coleslaw mix, so it went together super fast. I am not a fan of light mayo but I used it anyway to see if I would notice a difference of taste -- I didn't! Love love this recipe.

    Delicious ! Double the dressing and used bagged cold slaw with red onion added.
