Delicious Coleslaw. While we have our favorite coleslaw recipe we do like the variety trying new dressings add to our meals - we loved this Original Pantry Coleslaw dressing. I have noted we favor the recipes where the vinegar/lemon juice and sugar measures are close. Just enough different to be adding to my favorites cookbook to be made again ... and again. Thank you!
