I prefer this cole slaw over the creamy type for two reasons. It has a sharp, sweet and tangy flavor and absolutely no fat! I added another half teaspoon of celery seed - because I just love the stuff and used raspberry vinegar. Excellent!

Thank-you Inez for posting this recipe. I have been searching for this coleslaw recipe for years. I made this earlier in the day, and had it later for supper, it was still good and crisp. My husband really liked this too. I wish I could give you more than 5 stars for this recipe. "It's an all-star salad"!!!
