I got this out of my cookbook from Todd Wilbur. This is the only Cole slaw my husband will eat.

outofthisworld. I used between 4 and 6 cups of a coleslaw mix bought at Bruno's in Toronto. Did not have buttermilk, celery seed. Used fresh onions. Did you 3 drops of franks hot sauce, mayo, milk etc. Also, added a bit of lemon juice. I thought, how good could this be. Well, it is soooo tasty. Can't wait to have it with southern fried chicken. Yum. You must try it. I didn't even add buttermilk and it was great. Linda

I don't eat cole slaw, but, I made this for my father who loved it! So much so that I had to taste it myself - very good.
