This delicious recipe is for a sweet version of coleslaw. If you have ever eaten at a famous Dave's restaurant you'll find it is similar to their coleslaw. Did you know that one pound of cabbage is about 4 to 5 cups of raw shredded cabbage?

      Recipe sounds good. I use the bag in my cole slaw but mine has vingar and no mayo. I also use the cole slaw bag for egg rolls. Voted Up.

      Dear Mom ~ I vote for Mayo. Surprised about the quantity of sugar in this cole slaw. I can understand what grandma would call, "a pinch" but that seems quite sweet. I don't add any sugar. Thanks so much, Debby
