REVIEW: 4 star recipe rating
Great recipe and no doubt authentic - just a little too sweet. Use 1/3 the sugar and this is a hit with everyone. Will use as our go-to cole slaw! Thank you for posting this.

I had never had a sweet coleslaw before but my southern husband always talked about it. Tried this recipe and we LOVED it! It's great. I will be making coleslaw this way from now on.

I absolutely love this coleslaw. It tastes great right after you make it whereas alot of coleslaw recipes require sitting overnight. If you're from the south, you'll love it.
