Really enjoyed making this very simple slaw, & the dressing was nicely dressed up with the addition of the celery seed & brown sugar (dark brown that I made up here in my kitchen) ~ It all gives slaw a nice new twist! Thanks for sharing the recipe! [Tagged, made & reviewed for one of my adopted orphans in the current Pick A Chef]
