Loved this departure from your typical slaw made with mayo. It's sweet and tangy and refreshing. We had it along with baked beans and potato salad for a backyard barbecue and everyone loved it. I cut the amount of cabbage by using a bag of shredded cabbage mix so I halved the other ingredients, omitting the onion. Keeping this one handy this summer!

Made as directed omitting the onion. This recipe had very little flavor in my book. Will stick with a mayo based dressing for my coleslaw from now on.

This is a great vinegar-based coleslaw dressing - nice variation from the creamy coleslaw dressing.

This is my go to slaw. Like another poster, I half the dressing. I use splenda in place of the sugar to make it a little more blood sugar friendly. Nobody can tell the difference.

The dressing is a very refreshing change from mayo-based coleslaw dressing, and this keeps very well in the refrigerator. I halved the dressing ingredients, which made the perfect amount of dressing for a bag of coleslaw mix.

I've made this several times and everyone loves it, its a nice tasty change from the mayo slaw.

I used 1/2 the oil and sugar. I used olive oil and cider vinegar because that is all I had. It tastes pretty good. I will make it again.

I have made this time and time again. Everyone who has tried it comes back for seconds. It's definitely a keeper.

I often make this for potlucks. Even some people that claim they don't care for slaw like this! I don't care for mayo and this recipe still gives you that creamy dressing w/o the mayo. This is definitely a keeper!
