    This is amazing...I never knew a non-mayo slaw could be so good. I'm watching my calories, so I substituted egg beaters in for the yolk and 1/3 c. 1% milk in for the half and half, and it still turned out great. Thanks so much for the recipe - it's a keeper!  -  27 May 2006  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    This is the best cole slaw recipe! I also added an extra spoon of sugar. After it came out of the fridge, I poured it over a bag of precut cole slaw foud in the produce dept. and instant PERFECT cole slaw. I will never buy the store made stuff again!  -  28 Aug 2005  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
