I would use celery seed, a standard for coleslaw. I can't remember if the restaurant version has seeds or not. Of course you can personalize it the way you want it.

I see why the oil is included - to make it pouring consistency. I used a lemon-infused olive oil, just a tablespoon. And I love poppy seeds. This was great!

What's the point of the oil? I just add a little low fat milk to make it creamier... oil just adds so much more fat. Cider vinegar and celery salt (not regular salt) and fresh ground black pepper is my choice instead of poppy. I also add fresh diced bell pepper, whatever color I have: It adds great flavor.
