    You may sustitute celery seeds for the caraway seeds if you like. Adapted from The America's Test Kitchen Family Cookbook, that I just got for my birthday!

      I loved this recipe. I'm so glad you posted it, I had a coleslaw recipe using caraway seeds that I lost. I used 1 bag of preshredded coleslaw mix, did not toast caraway seeds, used 1 cup of mayonnaise, 2 tbl. vinegar, 1 tsp. dijon mustard, 2 tsp. sugar, 2 tsp. caraway seeds and 1 small onion sliced on a mandolin and let the slaw stay in refrigerator for 24 hours. It was nice and creamy and delicious!!!............Debbie

      Loved this coleslaw -- used both red and green cabbage -- so pretty -- I skipped the mustard but used 1 tsp mustard seeds (toasted until they popped with the caraway seed). Also used Miracle Whip (Light) instead of the mayo. Thanks for sharing this keeper!
