I and my family were all lucky enuf to have had this at the Weequahic & Claremont Diners in NJ. My father still makes it at home. The longer it refrigerates the better it gets... trust me on this one!

I love this recipe! I had green, yellow & red pepper on hand, so I added all three. Since I am not a fan of raw onions, I also cut this down to 1/3 c. I also used olive oil in the recipe instead of vegetable oil. I let this sit for 24 hours. Next time I will double the recipe. Thanks for the recipe.

I thought this was a tasty salad and a good alternative to the same old coleslaw that I always make. Before eating, I let the salad sit for about six hours and thought the flavor was great. The onion was way too overpowering, however, even though I only used one large yellow onion. The next day, all of the flavors had mellowed out, including the onion, but I found that it was almost too bland and a little bit watery. I did like it enough to make again, though.
