Better than KFC coleslaw

I found this recipe on and adapted it.

As a devout avoider of any and all coleslaw, I had my doubts, but hubby and darling daughter like it and wanted me to make some.
I tried this recipe...and fell in love!
I still don't like any other, but this one is special.

I brought it to a friend's house for a cookout one sunny day. He had tons of food leftover so brought a bunch down to his parents.
I got a phone call the next day BEGGING for this recipe. Apparently it tastes the same as one his mom used to have as a child.
So glad I could bring her back in time, even just for a meal!
