Funny, I use to eat coleslaw when I was a child ~ later in life coleslaw never tasted the same so, I would always tell people I didn't coleslaw. Come to find out, it wasn't that I didn't like coleslaw ...I just didn't like sweet coleslaw (which a lot of them are now). When me and my fiance met ~ he asked his Mom for her coleslaw recipe and made us some. I was amazed when I tried it because, his Mom's recipe was exactly the way I remembered coleslaw tasting when I was a child. So hopefully everyone will enjoy this recipe as much as I do :-)
