    BoxO'Wine's Note:

    Helen is my mother. no matter what i do, i cant get the coleslaw to taste like hers but this recipe comes very close. i think the love she had for us came through her pores when she squeezed the cabbage. cant buy that or duplicate it. thanks mom, i miss you terribly.

      What a wonderful tribute to your mother!! This is very similar to the one that my own mom makes - but I always guessed at the quantities as she never measures. Next time, I'll use red wine vinegar to make the dressing a tad sweeter. Thanx for posting!

      This is by far the best cole slaw we have ever had! My husband is pretty picky about his coleslaw. His family is Hungarian, so I decided to give this one a try, and we all loved it! I did add just a touch of paprika to it (can't have anything Hungarian without paprika in it!) We even like the dressing so much, we're going to make a batch for regular salad dressing, too! Thanks for the great recipe!

      This was a delicous coleslaw -- I'll be using your mother's recipe exclusively. I had to omit the onions as some guests have an aversion, and I added 2 tsp. of Old Bay Seasoning as I like the celery seed flavoring in my slaws. Thank you for posting, Box O'Wine!
