The coleslaw I grew up with was simply Miracle Whip and shredded cabbage. For a while I was buying bottled coleslaw dressing which was a bit better. After a trip to Texas where I tasted some delicious coleslaws, I realized that the flavour I really liked in the dressings was celery seed. It adds that something special which made the coleslaw so delicious. After looking at a few recipes I came up with this basic one which we really enjoy. It is very simple but you will find that people go back for more!! This dressing is best made at least an hour or two ahead and keeps well in the fridge for several days.
Other possible additions are raisins, chopped apples, crispy bacon bits or even chopped peanuts!!
