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.
