My mother has had this recipe since the 70's. It hasn't been made too often, but I love the flavour of this salad (I think it's the tumeric that I like). The last time I made this, I boiled the dressing ingredients and then threw in the veggies and let them wilt a little bit so I could pack it into the jar tighter. Yummy.

I did everything wrong and it's still a great cole slaw recipe! I forgot to cook the dressing, just poured it over the slaw after mixing it and I used cole slaw mix in a bag. I did refrigerate it overnight, and it has such a good taste. I used Splenda instead of sugar and it was still good. Jen T thanks for a recipe I will use often.
