      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
