Celery Seed Slaw Recipe

A simple cooked dressing gives this crisp cabbage mixture a delightful sweet-and-sour flavor my family savors. When I was a child, my mother used the recipe often, too. It's perfect for potlucks since you make it ahead, then chill it before serving. -Ronnie Stone, Arapahoe, North Carolina

"Horribly sweet and very un healthy. Too much sodium and wltn all the oil it is a waste of a good vegie.

I do my celery seed dressing with 1/2 cup of mayo, one half cup of mild,
1/4 cup of apple cider vinnegar. and a tablespoon of sugar. Sit well to disolve and mix the ingredients then add celery seed to taste and mix in coleslaw and let stand at least 2 hours. A much better recipe."
