Recipe by Alan in SW Florida

This recipe is good for those of you who don't like mayonnaise in coleslaw. You could certainly use the packaged pre-shredded cole slaw mix.

This was great. I tried using splenda instead of sugar but it seized up on me and separated, so I tried again with sugar. I found if I whisked it while it was cooling it didn't separate. I will use this as my standard coleslaw recipe now. Thanks for posting
