    May I recommend Kraft Coleslaw as the dressing.

    Excellent – I have Celiac Disease so this is a wonderful gluten-free replacement for our traditional southern-style cole slaw. I cooked the dressing over medium heat to melt the sugar and blend ingredients. This seemed to make it better. Also added some slivered almonds just before serving.
