I was making my old regular coleslaw one afternoon and found it too bland for company. I only had a few items on hand at the time to tweak the recipes, and pickles did not seem appropriate. So this is what I came up with. Very simple but very tasty. Since you use salted sunflower seeds, use salt sparingly.

Delicious! Only thing I added was 1 tbsp of whole grain Dijon mustard and I used a fresh cabbage/carrot mixture instead of prepared. This will be my go-to slaw recipe! Read More

The slaw came out very very good. I had a bag of ranch flavored sunflower seeds and needed to use some up. The added crunch makes this recipe. Thank you! Read More

This is a delicious slaw. I did change two things. Since I don't care for celery I omitted it and I decreased the amount of mayo. Next time I might add some hearts of palm in place of the celery. The sunflower seeds were really great. The crunch adds a surprise that is delightful to the palette. Read More

I liked this coleslaw! It was the closest to the original I could find but I did put tiny slices of carrots in instead of celery. I also skipped the green onion and I would probably decrease further still the White Onion. My husband said it tastes like White Spot's coleslaw which means that this was a hit! I loved the sunflower seeds! I will definitely make it again. Read More
