Substituted savoy for white cabbage, shallot for onion and poppy seeds for celery seeds (as i didn't have any), and also reduced the sugar slightly - but really nice. A change from gloopy mayo coleslaw....

Really delicious. Used a large shallot instead of a white onion, and didn't have celery seeds so used a teaspoon of caraway seeds instead. Very tasty.

Lovely dressing and slaw, I couldn't find celery seeds so I added a small amount of celery salt which worked well. Even the non salad eaters enjoyed this one!
