I live in a wonderful Amish community and the ladies here are wonderful cooks. This is a lovely cole slaw recipe for those who like slaw without mayonnaise.

I have made this twice now. First time exactly, second time made some minor changes. Great either way, but I think I nailed it the second time. -use red onion for color -reduce sugar to 3/4 cup -1/2 cup white vinegar, 1/2 cup apple cider vinegar -add very thinly slices of 1 yellow or orange bell pepper for more added color/flavor -add 1-2 tablespoons lightly toasted sesame seeds for added crunch

This recipe is a true Amish recipe and is supposed to have lots of liquid, it enables you to keep the salad for 2 weeks, and contrary to the above reviews it does not need to be reduced, you serve it with a slotted spoon.

Yippeeeeeeeee! This is a very close copy to the Cole Slaw that is served at Primanti Brothers in Pittsburgh! I am so grateful to have found this recipe! I lived in "da Burgh" for 11 years and missed the slaw. I used 2 (16 oz.) bags of Tri Blend Slaw. Primanti Brothers only uses white cabbage, no carrots or red cabbage that you find in the tri blend. I cut the sugar back to 3/4 cup. Yea, this was a little watery but what slaw isn't? I just shook the tupperware bowl prior to serving and used a slotted spoon. Oh, you really need to make this the day PRIOR to eating; it really makes a difference in taste. This is so wonderful, I will be making and taking this everywhere. Not only is it delicious but you don't have to worry about mayonnaise going bad! Thanks for the post Christina!!!
