    This is the exact recipe I was searching for. My Great Grandmother made this and I alway buy it at the PA Dutch Farmer's market. It tasted just like it, thanks for posting.  -  22 Nov 2009  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Wonderful in flavor and ease. My youngest son doesn't like the mayo version of slaw so we make both now! Thanks for the recipe!  -  03 Jul 2010  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    I love this recipe but make slightly different. I use 1 bell pepper and add 1 or 2 chopped white onions. I also add vegetable oil. This is a family favorite!  -  26 Jan 2012  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
