I was afraid that the horseradish would be too much but it wasn't and was balanced out well. I think the recipe is missing a measurement though, it just says 1/4 celery seeds I think that's supposed to be 1/4 teaspoon? That's what I used anyway and I don't think you'd want to use more than that. And actually I might just use celery salt next time and reduce the regular salt.

I am sure this is a great recipe for coleslaw but it is not like famous daves where I live. The resturant version has no celery seed or red cabbage and I am postive it has crushed pineapple dried parsely and chopped onion. I am sorry to say I do not have the recipe either.

Just FYI: Some restaurant chains vary their recipes based on local/regional preferences so that could be the difference (they also sometimes change their recipes over time so copy cat recipes could be from an older menu).

I hate to chop so used the food processor and followed the directions. It was quick and easy and the family loved it. It has replaced my old family recipe!
