Really Red Coleslaw

READY IN: 10mins
Recipe by ReeLani

Found this in the June "Better Homes and Gardens". It's a very tasty blend, and great for cool Summer eating. Note: I find that 1/2 cup of onion is plenty for me, but I don't like a really strong onion flavor in anything.

Wonderful coleslaw recipe! I used a head of red cabbage instead of the pre-packaged mix and added 1 carrot to the cabbage when I was shredding the cabbage. I also used only 1/2 a red onion and the coleslaw was perfect for us. All of us liked this version of coleslaw better than the usual green kind.
