Made this tonight for my "Survivor" dinner group and it was great. Easy and fast to do with a food processor and the flavor was perfect. I was concerned about 4 teaspoons of celery seed, but it was just right. I'm definitely adding this to my favorites. This recipe is 3 WW Pts.

This was a really good recipe. It was one of the pinkest cole slaws I've ever seen, but the taste was just how I like my cole slaw. I'm adding it to my favorites!

I am generally not a big cole slaw fan, BUT this one is perfect. I put in a little less sugar, because I don't like sweet slaw, and it was so good. We put it on top of pulled pork sandwiches and it was truly a hit. Red cabbage is not an option here. It is a must. Sprinkle a little coarse salt over it! Great!

Fantastic!<br/><br/>My first coleslaw - made for pulled pork sandwiches.<br/><br/>This reminded me of a favourite recipe - Whole Foods Sonoma Chicken Salad - maybe because of the combination of mayo, slight sweetness, and an overall fresh, cool, just rich enough feeling.<br/><br/>My only issue was using old old old celery seeds from the spice cabinet - and I just read that old celery seeds acquire a bitter taste.
