I always loved my mother's coleslaw. She taught me to be careful with the amount of red (purple) cabbage you add or it will turn the whole thing pink. Sometimes I'll add a bit of grated carrot too. One of these times when I'm not afraid to mess it up, I might try adding a half tablespoon of prepared horseradish to kick it up, although it is yummy as is. My mom made slaw every Thanksgiving. I like it as a salad or as a condiment on a sandwich. Great with French fries.

Absolutely perfect flavor and super easy! I didn't have red cabbage and just used green which was fine too. This is a keeper!
