I would use celery seed, a standard for coleslaw. I can't remember if the restaurant version has seeds or not. Of course you can personalize it the way you want it.

I see why the oil is included - to make it pouring consistency. I used a lemon-infused olive oil, just a tablespoon. And I love poppy seeds. This was great!

What's the point of the oil? I just add a little low fat milk to make it creamier... oil just adds so much more fat. Cider vinegar and celery salt (not regular salt) and fresh ground black pepper is my choice instead of poppy. I also add fresh diced bell pepper, whatever color I have: It adds great flavor.

Nice recipe but poppy seed has no flavor, I use mustard seed and celery seed soaked overnite in a small amount of vinegar,forget the oil or use fragrant olive oil, dry mustard powder may be used instead in the marinade mix

I made the fluffy Pancakes for a birthday breakfast for my husband,no more box pancake mix in our house. I'll have them with fruit next time. Going to make for my grandkids on their first day back to school, blueberries maybe. Karen B

Don't see the point of adding the oil...just more fat and calories to struggle with losing. I use mayo, less sugar, celery seed instead of poppy seed, and onion powder instead of raw onions. The recipe as given might taste like restaurant slaw, but I haven't yet had slaw that had raw onions in it at any restaurant.

I use mayo, dressing is not my favorite. Never used salt or onion ille try that. Prefer a couple grinds of fresh ground pepper and celery seed instead of poppy.

I make mine a lot like this but I use a bit more vinegar and prefer celery seeds over poppy seeds.
