The four tablespoons of celery seed must have been a mistake. Too much made a good dressing too "bitter". I'm sure four teaspoons would have been the correct amount Read More

This recipie was terrible. I only used three tablespoons of celery seed because that's all I had. My kids spit it out. My husband had one bite and wouldn't eat it. The celery seed bitterness spoiled a lot of good cabbage. Read More

I loved it -- especially with the horseradish -- but I did use less celery seed. Read More

First the ease of mixing/storing in a jar works wonderfully. Second I used about 1 teaspoon of celery SALT red wine vinegar instead of white 1% mild to desired consistency (didn't have heavy cream on hand) then followed recipe almost to a tee (eyed measurements). Third this recipe is perfect for a 16oz bag of slaw mix and finally my picky picky boyfriend's rave review was the icing on the cake! Perfect all the way around! Would probably make a great salad dressing as well as dipping sauce for chicken/shrimp. Read More

Although I made changes to the recipe that had a negative impact - I don't know if this one would have ever been my favorite. Piggy backing off previous reviews I tried a little yogurt to boost the health factor in this recipe - wouldn't do that again. My own fault. Now onto where I don't like the recipe the honey was too strong. I think the sugar would have provided adequate sweetness and the honey added a fruity sweetness I didn't like and had to temper with extra vinegar. As for the celery seed - 1 tsp was enough. Used it on Broccoli slaw.... too sweet for me can imagine it would have been worse with cabbage mix. Read More

It was pretty obvious to me that there was too much celery seed for my taste so I adjusted it. One tsp was enough for me and I also used fat free half & half (had no cream on hand) and a good spicy dijon. Between that and the horseradish it had quite a kick!! Loved it! I was serving this for guests but next time will replace most - if not all - of the mayo with nonfat yogurt as I plan on making this often. I also like to use both green and red cabbage to make it colorful. Read More

This is a good and tangy coleslaw dressing. I did sub buttermilk for the heavy cream. We had a nice tight and zesty head of freshly harvested cabbage from our weekly CSA box and it made a really nice slaw. Read More

DELICIOUS! This will be my new "go to" dressing for coleslaw. Didn't have heavy cream, but half& half worked just fine. I also thought 4 tablespoons of celery seed sounded like too much so I used 1 Tablespoon and it seemed perfect. Also used Dijon mustard and it tasted great. Read More

I didn't care for the flavor. Use celery seed sparingly Read More
