Aunt Nell's Coleslaw

Recipe by Dreamgoddess

There are so many varieties of coleslaw and I wanted to add my Aunt's recipe. This is the way she has always made Coleslaw and it's my absolute favorite version. Sooooo good! Cook time is the time needed to chill the slaw.

I made the recipe exactly as specified, tasted it, found it a little 'bland' for our tastes and then the adjustments started. Seeing as I strayed so far from the original recipe (I added pickle juice to the mayo for more 'zing', a little minced onion, some grated carrot for colour), I don't think I can really justify anything higher than a 3.
