I'm up for Mardi Gras anytime of the year, & since I also like coleslaw, this recipe was just beckoning me! As with others who made this, we particularly enjoyed the inclusion of the caraway seeds! Definitely will be making this again ~ Thanks for sharing the recipe! [Tagged & made in Please Review My Recipe]

This is a nice slaw and unique using mustard instead of mayo. We didn't have caraway seeds, so we used celery seeds. We used bag slaw mix and unfortunately it did not have red cabbage in it. Grrrrr!!! We felt it was just a bit too much vinegar but otherwise a great recipe. Thanks for posting.

The mustard-vinegar dressing on this was really wonderful. I made it for a picnic, and everyone loved it! I used 4 cups of white cabbage and added 1 chopped apples. I also didn't use any caraway seeds since I forgot to buy them at the store. I wish that I had remembered because the other reviews highlighted them. I'll have try it again with the caraway since this was so yummy even without them! Thanks Sharon!
