Wow, I was blown away with the great taste here and this is now my go-to creamy slaw recipe. I like using fresh lemon juice and white wine vinegar. It's definitely lemony in a great way! Easily can be tweaked for your own taste. I shred my own cabbage and sometimes use celery salt for the salt component, if no celery seeds are on hand. For those concerned with onion, you can prep them to remove the harshness. Soak chopped onions for 10-20 minutes in ice cold water, drain and use. Or flash them in hot water. (For flashing, put chopped onions briefly in near boiling water for 10-30 seconds, then rinse and strain with very cold water til they aren't warm. This will fix the problem and they'll still be like fresh onions in the salad without the bite or aftertaste.) I never put fresh chopped raw onions in anything anymore without this treatment, try it. I've used the whites and greens of scallions in this recipe, too, with very good results.

It just doesn't get any better than this! The slaw will last in the fridge - and stay crispy -- for several days. That is, if there is any left! People love this slaw and always ask for the recipe.

Ooh, I really liked this! I used half and half instead of heavy cream, but that's only because I always that have it in the fridge. The sauce for this is just delicious! Thanks for posting.

This coleslaw recipe was great. My husband loved it and it almost does taste like KFC, didn't have celery seeds, was great without them too.

Overall we did enjoy this coleslaw, the texture, creaminess, right on. I do think however think that it was lacking in flavor...I feel that increasing the vinegar will provide the tang that I feel it needs. Thank you for providing a low carb side dish to my recipe box. I look forward to making this again, with the additional vinegar. :)

Loved it! My husband is obsessed! I used shredded cabbage and carrots and onion powder in place of the onion because I was worried the onion we had would be too bitter. It turned out fantastic!!

Very good recipe.....though I feel that the calculated carbs are not as high as listed in the nutrition facts ( a good thing! )....I come up with less than 7g net per serving.
