I've had their coleslaw and there is one ingredient missing in this recipe but I'm not sure what it is. There is a small seed-like ingredient that is added to the dressing...but this is pretty much a super close match.

Love the cole slaw. Do you have or know where to find the recipe for their tri tip soup?

This recipe is almost exactely like WR. The only thing I did differently was use peanut oil instead of vegtable oil. And the small seed-like ingredient is celery seed. That's it!
