I was just down in New Orleans and had this in a restaraunt. I loved it and hope you do too!

Wonderful!! There is only 3 of us, so I bought a small bag of ready coleslaw (undressed) and quartered the dressing ingredients. It was plenty and simply delicious. I will never use bought dressing again!!!.
I made half recipe. I wanted to use a red bell pepper. I though I had it but I used them all. I decided to omit the red onion. I used light mayonnaise. I omitted the celery seeds and salt. The taste is so good and it's creamy just the way I like. Thanks Sharon :) Made for your cookathon
Growing up in the South I've had many variations of this style coleslaw and this ranks among the best we've had. Thank you!
