How to Make Mom's "Hot" Coleslaw


  1. Combine cabbage, carrot and onion in large bowl (preferably one with a cover).
  2. Place vinegar, oil, all the sugar, salt, and mustard into saucepan. Bring to a full boil.
  3. Pour hot vinegar mixture over cabbage. Toss well (I use a bowl with a lid, and "shake" as my version of tossing).
  4. Chill, covered in the fridge. If you give it a toss every day, it will keep for a couple of weeks.
