    I've always made mine w/light mayo & fat free sour cream.
    It makes it very creamy and fewer calories. I also add 1/4 cup of both red & green peppers for added crunch & extra
    veggies for those who WOULD NOT normaly eat them.
    Give it a try. It's always a big hit at all the gatherings when I bring - 9/2/09

    You say the coleslaw got spoiled by the next day. Hmmmm? Did you leave it out of the fridge? I've made this for over 30 years and it's never let me down. We eat it for several days with no problem. . .wonder what could have happened!! Z

  • To avoid mayo & sugar --- try a vinaigrette style dressing, sweeten with honey, agave, or other artificial sweetener. Another interesting ingredient - add crushed pineapple . . . adds flavor.

  • I haved used a very similar recipe for years. My mom made it and passed it on to me. If you don't like the taste of day old slaw (it can get a little juicy), or if you are making it for just one, mix up the dressing and apply it to fresh grated ingredients each time. I add black pepper also. - 8/29/12
