Been a caterer and personal chef for over 20 yrs. This particular recipe for cole slaw seems to be the favorite of both my friends and customers. If you like a sweet/sour cole slaw then give it a try. I do our church's Roast Chicken Dinner each year before our annual festival and I always make more because there are those who like to take it home by the pint. I don't use any salt nor onion. There's ample salt in the mayo. Seemingly sometimes the onion overpowers the slaw. Then there are customers who dislike onion. You may also substitute Splenda for the granulated sugar. You may also use a lower fat mayonnaise but I think it adds a different flavor. You may also substitute the extra 1/2 cup of mayo for milk.
