  • 3/4 cup of light mayonnaise
  • 1/4 cup of sugar
  • 2-3 tablespoons of vinegar
  1. Combine the Cole Slaw mix with the onion, apples and raisins.

  3. Pour over Cole Slaw mixture, and sprinkle with almonds.

  12. My husband is not fond of cabbage at all. However somehow this is now one of the salads he requests the most. Our family really enjoys it. Thanks for all your great recipes. So down to earth and user friendly.

  13. I made this for our family gathering today for Easter Dinner. I should have tripled the recipe. Every one loved it and not one spoonful was left. Thanks for the great recipe.

  14. Since finding your recipe it has become one of our very favourite. I do substitute craisins for the raisins, as we like them better and they also add more colour. Thank you for this wonderful way to enjoy coleslaw!

  15. Just wondering how many this recipe serves?

    1. It depends on what else you are serving it with. This usually feeds 6-8 people if not more.
