I use this homemade coleslaw dressing for broccoli slaw as well.It goes wonderfully with both of them. The addition of horseradish makes all the difference in this dressing. If you can not find horseradish you can substitute it perfectly with Wasabi paste. Wasabi paste is the green paste that is served with sushi.
Although it is more affordable to slice your own cabbage and shred your own carrots, I find that buying the prepackaged slaw is not all that more money. You can usually purchase a 16 oz.bag for around $1.99. It will save you lots of time!
This dressing will last you for a few days in a closed container in the fridge.
