This recipe comes from the Luby's Cafeteria 50th Anniversary Cookbook. The crisp colors and tangy dill dressing make this one-of-a-kind slaw a hit! --Note-- refrigeration time is noted as cooking time (2 hours).

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!
