    McGelby's Note:

    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!

      This was delicious. I used fresh cabbage which I grated and 1 grated carrot, other than that I follow the recipe. Next time I will not use the mustard. It gave a yellow tint to the cabbage the next day. i will be making this again. Everyone loved it, even with the yellow tint. Thanks for sharing.

      Delicious slaw!!! My grandma always made vinegar-based slaw and I thought this was very close to hers!!! I used a small cabbage and 1 carrot instead of the bagged. I left out the mustard because I was making it for one of my Thanksgiving, 2008 salads and was trying to keep close to my grandma's. I don't think that she put mustard in but all these other ingredients she did. I will add some mustard in to see how that tastes next time!! Thanks for posting!!!
