"I recall preparing this recipe when it first came out in Taste of Home! I did adjust this recipe by using 2 celery ribs, finely chopped, 1 head of green cabbage, shredded, 2 large carrots, shredded, 1 small onion, finely chopped, 1 green pepper, finely chopped. For dressing, I combined the following ingredients: 1 tsp. salt, 1/4 cup sugar, 1 tsp. poppy seeds, 2 to 3 Tbsp. apple cider vinegar, 1/4 to 1/2 cup canola or vegetable oil, 1 tsp. salt and 1/4 to 1/2 tsp. ground black pepper. I enjoy this sweet and sour flavor of this coleslaw! It reminded me of the "health salad" which was sold in supermarkets a long time ago! delowenstein"
