Why I Love This Recipe
This recipe is from my Mom. She used to make it for my extended family's big "birthday picnic" in the summer -- we celebrated everyone's birthday at the same time, because all our birthdays fell within one six-week period.
This slaw is sweet and tangy. The dressing is not creamy.
Ingredients You'll Need
3 pounds of cabbage
1 bell pepper, diced fine (optional)
1 medium onion, diced fine
1 cup sugar
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon dry mustard
1 teaspoon celery seed
1 cup cider vinegar
⅔ cup vegetable oil
Shred cabbage, mix with pepper and onion (you can leave out both the pepper & onion, and this will still be good).
Mix all dressing ingredients in small pot, bring to a boil and stir to dissolve sugar.
Pour over cabbage and toss.
Refrigerate until cool all the way through—overnight is best.
