You can make the dish up to one day ahead if you like. The veggies will stay crisp, and the flavours will meld as the slaw chills.
Poppy seeds won't make you loopy, but eating them can cause a false positive on a drug test. It is uncommon, but it does happen. Some companies won't allow subsequent drug testing, second chance drug testing, or more refined drug testing. This means you could lose your job unless you can pay for the advanced drug testing yourself. Or you might be passed over for a job because of a false positive. Although most drug screens are now sophisticated enough to differentiate between the seeds and actually processed narcotics, it’s safe; just do NOT use the poppy seeds if you need a test.
