      This is great! I wouldn't change anything, it tastes just like the lubys salad. I've been craving it for so long and they took it off their menu. So happy I found this!

      Definate 5 star one for us. Loved the combination & addition of the pickles, peppers & pimentos. My DH isn't real crazy about cabbage, however, he really enjoys this dish. Awesome recipe, thanks for sharing.

      For a potluck or barbeque can't do better. My favorite cole slaw. Luby's generally does excellet cafeteria food and this is one of their best. Dozens of people have asked for the recipe and it really can be prepared a day ahead. My wife who usually does not like cole slaw loves this one. Quick to make with a food processor slicer.
