    Good ingredients but not even close on measurements. You need 1 1/2 cups mayo, 6 Tablespoons vinegar and 1 Tablespoon sugar (all 3 X's the amount in this recipe). When you add the additional qtys it is just enough to coat the 12 cups of cabbage called for. I have to give it a 1 star because it is so far off by 5 stars when you measure as I have stated. Let it sit a day in the fridge before eating.

    This is a GREAT standard slaw recipe! I always add celery seed to my slaws- i think it is the secret ingredient to a fabulous slaw! To make it healthier I add some fat free greek yogurt and Walden's mayo in place of the regular mayo.

    Loved this coleslaw -- used both red and green cabbage -- so pretty -- I skipped the mustard but used 1 tsp mustard seeds (toasted until they popped with the caraway seed). Also used Miracle Whip (Light) instead of the mayo. Thanks for sharing this keeper!

    Delish!!-I made sort of 1/2 batch...had about 8 cups of all green cabbage...so used the eyeballs to grate carrot and onion with "microplane" zester...used a homemade vegan-mayo-ishy with all the rest of the suggested mix-ins, including the fabulous caraway seeds (<b>LOVE-YUM! </b>)...I made it to go with mr. free-free's left-over corned beef from St Patrick's Day :) and as a prelude for a batch of ;)cultured cabbage;) I am working on...(the first hour is the same prep)- <b>HUGE HIT!! </b> :) Thanks again Sharon!

    I loved this recipe. I'm so glad you posted it, I had a coleslaw recipe using caraway seeds that I lost. I used 1 bag of preshredded coleslaw mix, did not toast caraway seeds, used 1 cup of mayonnaise, 2 tbl. vinegar, 1 tsp. dijon mustard, 2 tsp. sugar, 2 tsp. caraway seeds and 1 small onion sliced on a mandolin and let the slaw stay in refrigerator for 24 hours. It was nice and creamy and delicious!!!............Debbie
