Overnight Coleslaw

My kids HATE coleslaw ... but they will eat this non-mayo recipe from their Grandma Betty.

3 C. shredded green cabbage
1/4 C. red onion, chopped
1/2 carrot, shredded
1/4 C. sugar

Place first three ingredients in a bowl; sprinkle sugar over the top.


1/2 tsp. sugar
1/4 tsp. dry mustard
1/4 tsp. celery seed
1/4 tsp salt
3 Tbls. oil (such as Wesson)
1/4 C. white vinegar

Bring the dressing just to a boil and while still warm (not hot) pour over the cabbage mixture. Stir and store in airtight container in the refrigerator overnight ... or at least four hours.

Dear Mrs. Mac...
This sounds as nice as the good coleslaw that you get in an expensive restaurant.
Sabine has a good coleslaw recipe on her blog too.
Coleslaw isn't fattening, right?...Love Terry

I love this recipe. I'm not to crazy about the traditional recipe, but I've had this one and really like it. It also won't give you food poisoning when left out to long!

I made this before coming to work this morning - can't wait to have it tonight with some grilled salmon!
