This is probably the best cole slaw recipe I have tried, and I have tried lots! It has just the right amount of sweet and tart, and if you add some pineapple tid-bits to it, it is that much better. I use this time after time and it is terrific!!!

I will definitely make this coleslaw again. I tweaked recipe a bit by adding grated onion, celery seed, and more pepper. I agree with others..a little on the sweet side. I will cut back on the sugar next time.

The best ever coleslaw recipe. I did add some garlic powder and a little grated onion. Took it to work to share and got rave reviews there too. Perfect with fried fish and barbecue sandwiches. Definitely would make it again, and again!

I've been looking for a coleslaw recipe like this for years. It was a touch on the sweet side for me, so I'll probably drop the sugar back by a TBS or so next time, but overall it was really good.

This coleslaw recipe is perfectly simple and a great addition to a smoked or BBQ meal. I took the suggestion to use a little less sugar and added chopped smoked almonds.
