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!

This is a GREAT standard slaw recipe! I always add celery seed to my slaws- i think it is the secret ingredient to a fabulous slaw! To make it healthier I add some fat free greek yogurt and Walden's mayo in place of the regular mayo.
