I usually make it using green cabbage; however, in this picture you can see when I made it last I used a mixture of red cabbage and white cabbage. I do that for special occasions or when I want more color than the green cabbage gives (which sometimes looks more white than green) Enjoy.
1head of green cabbage, grated or shredded -i sometimes combine and add red and green cabbage*
11 onion, slicde in thin rings – cut rings 1 or 2 times (if you like the flavor of onions -but not the onions, leave the rings whole and remove before serving)
3/4 csalad oil
3/4 - 1 cwhite vinegar
1 tspcelery seed
1 tspdry mustard (or 3 teaspoons prepared mustard)
How to Make Marinated Coleslaw
- Combine first two ingredients and sprinkle 3/4 cup of sugar on top.
- Mix together 1-teaspoon sugar, celery seed, vinegar, mustard and salt in a saucepan. Heat to boiling. Add salad oil; again bring to a boil and then simmer for two minutes.
- * If desired, add 1 grated carrot and 1 cup diced celery to slaw.
- NOTE 1: You may add Onion or Italian Dressing -instead of the oil and vinegar (or 1/4 pkg. Onion Dressing), if desired. I like the original recipe -above, myself.
