white wine vinegar
1 small head
I loved it -- especially with the horseradish -- but I did use less celery seed.
The four tablespoons of celery seed must have been a mistake. Too much made a good dressing too "bitter". I'm sure four teaspoons would have been the correct amount
This recipie was terrible. I only used three tablespoons of celery seed because that's all I had. My kids spit it out. My husband had one bite and wouldn't eat it. The celery seed bitterness spoiled a lot of good cabbage.
First, the ease of mixing/storing in a jar works wonderfully. Second, I used about 1 teaspoon of celery SALT, red wine vinegar instead of white,
1% mild to desired consistency (didn't have heavy cream on hand), then followed recipe almost to a tee (eyed measurements). Third, this recipe is perfect for a 16oz bag of slaw mix, and finally, my picky, picky boyfriend's rave review was the icing on the cake! Perfect all the way around! Would probably make a great salad dressing as well as dipping sauce for chicken/shrimp.
Although I made changes to the recipe that had a negative impact - I don't know if this one would have ever been my favorite. Piggy backing off previous reviews I tried a little yogurt to boost the health factor in this recipe - wouldn't do that again. My own fault. Now onto where I don't like the recipe, the honey was too strong. I think the sugar would have provided adequate sweetness and the honey added a fruity sweetness I didn't like and had to temper with extra vinegar. As for the celery seed - 1 tsp was enough. Used it on Broccoli slaw.... too sweet for me can imagine it would have been worse with cabbage mix.
This is a good and tangy coleslaw dressing. I did sub buttermilk for the heavy cream. We had a nice tight and zesty head of freshly harvested cabbage from our weekly CSA box and it made a really nice slaw.
It was pretty obvious to me that there was too much celery seed for my taste, so I adjusted it. One tsp was enough for me, and I also used fat free half & half (had no cream on hand) and a good spicy dijon. Between that and the horseradish it had quite a kick!! Loved it! I was serving this for guests, but next time will replace most - if not all - of the mayo with nonfat yogurt, as I plan on making this often. I also like to use both green and red cabbage to make it colorful.
Sounded good, but the celery seed was overwhelming even though I used half of the amount indicated in the recipe. After serving it the first time and being disappointed, I did tweak it, adding sugar to offset the bitterness, and it was better, but there are so many good recipes out there that it isn't worth the trouble.
