This is the time of year to make THE BEST COLESLAW, or some of you may just consider this cabbage salad. DH & I love this; the boys hate when I make the dressing because it stinks (you'll see why). This cabbage is supposed to keep 1 week, but it never lasts that long.
One Week Coleslaw (serves 8-10)
adapted from The Frugal Gourmet's Whole Family Cookbook
- 2 1/2 lb head of green cabbage, shredded*
- 1 cup shredded carrots, green pepper, onions, whatever veggies you like
- 2 Tbl sugar
- 2/3 cup cider vinegar
- 2 tsp celery seed, whole
- 2 tsp dry mustard
- 1 tsp salt
*I often use the bagged coleslaw mix. This recipe is also easy to divide and just make 1 lb's worth.
This is a great potluck dish. DH & I will also eat it during the week for lunches with cheese & crackers or tuna or whatever. It's nice with sunflower seeds sprinkled on top, too.
Hope you enjoy this!
