Does Marzetti's count?

Marzetti's is my hands down favorite. Wish I could copy cat it, LOL.

I really don't like the super sweet, chopped stuff. There are several versions that I like on the vinegar side. In Emeril's Real and Rustic, there is a recipe for Ma Ma slaw which is great. Our SINs aunt gave us another great recipe for this type of slaw.

If you're gonna make a Key Lime pie, you have to use real Key Limes!

I like to mix a tad of cumin with low fat yogurt and some red cabbage and all other common coleslaw ingredients. Goes well with some fish tacos!

Oooo. I'm going to have to find a way to flag this one so I can get back to it. My way to do creamy is much like I've seen here. I usually have a jar of what hubby calls "Claire's super secret sauce" -- a basic ranch made with half may, the other half either yogurt (preferably Greek nonfat when I can get it) or buttermilk. Then in the summer it is fresh herbs from the garden, but in the winter I like Penzey's mix ... not their ranch mix, but either their creamy peppercorn (fave) or green goddess. I use it for a lot of things, but in the summer I'd like something more vinegar-y. So I'll come back to this site. Maybe print it. I've never printed from this site and have a new printer. Time to experiment?

favorite slaw..

Mine has gotten a lot of rave reviews.. very simple.

Obviously, shredded cabbage. Sprinkle liberally with sugar, allow it to set for 10 to 15 minutes(it matters!!). Add Miracle whip, a little milk, celery seed and stir. Add sugar more sugar to taste. It should be CREAMY when done... very tasty.

Okay, I have to weigh in here. We like the basic mayo, vinegar, sugar dressing, my mom always added some evap milk, I really don't know why, but I do it too. have to have a little salt and alot of pepper. I prefer to shred my cabbage by hand with a very sharp knife, I like really thin shreds and lots of finely chopped onion.
My mother-in-law used to put a pinch or two of curry powder in her coleslaw, I loved it! DH thinks he detests curry so he was quite surprised when he caught me adding it to the slaw one time and refused to believe that his "mum" ever used it. Cracked me up that she was "slipping" that by him for eons!
I change it up a bit for fish tacos, I use mexican style sour cream, sugar and fresh lime juice.
If you don't like the food, have more wine!

I've never added sugar to coleslaw before. Perhaps I'm missing a trick there.

We do shredded cabbage (red and white), carrot, onion, a little crushed garlic, some mayo, some salad cream, salt, pepper. Really, really basic.

Might have to try some of the above recipes and see what the rabble think! :)
