Carnival Slaw

(this serves 10- but I halved it all and it turned out fine!)

-8 cups shredded green & red cabbage (carrots optional)
-1 large red onion sliced in thin rings
-1/2 cup sugar
-1 1/2 tsp. salt
-2 1/2 tsp. celery seed – more if you like
-2 1/2 tsp. dry mustard -more if you like
-1 1/4 tsp. pepper
-1/2 cup cider vinegar
-1/2 cup vegetable oil


Put sugar, salt, celery seed, dry mustard, pepper and cider vinegar in a pan and bring to a boil. Stir in oil & blend. After dressing cools, pour over cabbage & onions 1-2 hours before serving. Toss well & toss again just before serving!

***Next time, I am adding carrots- because it looks so dang prettie!***
