This is THE BEST coleslaw I have ever made! I made a huge bowl for church potluck and it was almost all eaten. I will use this recipe every time from now on.

I have used this recipe before, lost it and found it again through Made it for friends and both of them thought I had bought it from KFC. Surprised that it was made from this recipe, I gave my friend the copy and came back to print out this one. Great tasting!!!!! Good job

Used pre-cut bagged slaw from the store - just used the recipe for the dressing. Best of all the kids loved it! If you can make it the night before you use it do so.

It has a good acidity, and I left the milk out to make sure it wasn't too runny. Pretty tasty!
