Amish Cole Slaw

READY IN: 8hrs 15mins
Recipe by McGelby

Found posted on by Christina J. I've been told this is the closest copycat recipe for Primanti Bro's cole slaw. Fingers crossed. I plan on making it today for a BBQ. Cooking time includes minimum refrigeration time. It was recommended that slaw be refrigerated overnight and served with a slotted spoon to drain excess dressing.

Excellent recipe! I followed the directions exactly as provided and was very pleased with the result. McGelby, thank you for posting a vinegar-based slaw for those of us not particulary fond of mayo-based!
