I was not a fan of the addition of sugar and hot sauce to coleslaw but I’ve never considered adding poppyseeds or mustard powder so thank you for that!

Very nice and refreshing! Added an extra tbsp. of vinegar and a dash of celery seed. Hooray for non mayo based coleslaw!

A tad sweet with only 1 tablespoon sugar and 2 tablespoons light olive oil. Used lots (for me) salt and pepper but no hot sauce. With cilantro, would be great on fish tacos.
