package of cole slaw
finely shredded cabbage (angel hair cut-you want thin cabbage)
marie's cole slaw dressing (available at publix)
celery salt
garnish with sliced tomato, parsley, etc.


1Mix cabbage with scant amount of cole slaw dressing. Mix will look dry but will moisten overnight. Add a sprinkle of celery salt, tarragon to taste. You do not need to much. Taste the slaw.
2Refrigerate overnight. This is the key to the best slaw. If it is not moist enough, add a bit more dressing. Do not drown the slaw. Taste it again for seasoning.
3Note: Dad's slaw recipe was much more complex but this recipe is as close as it gets. Dad never gave me the recipe...I watched him make it and copied his style.
