Grandma’s Cole Slaw

I have recently shared a series of dessert recipes, so I promise the next few recipes will contain vegetables!  My family has accused me of trying to make them diabetic one dessert at a time. So here’s a recipe with fresh cabbage and bell peppers.  It’s delicious and reminds me of my Grandma.  This is one of her classic recipes.  She called it “9-Day Slaw.”  It’ll last nine days in the refrigerator, if it doesn’t get gobbled up first.  This slaw has no mayo- it’s light, delicious and perfect for a summer gathering.  I recently made it for a family reunion and I’ve been promising to share it for a few weeks now.  So here it is, finally…..

Ingredients: (I doubled this recipe to feed 30)

1 head of cabbage, shredded
1 yellow onion, diced
1 yellow or orange bell pepper, diced (I like to use both.)
1 1/2 cup granulated sugar
1 Tbsp. prepared mustard
1 cup of vegetable oil
1 Tbsp. celery seed
1 Tbsp. Salt
1 cup white vinegar

Directions:

1.) Shred the cabbage, dice the onion and bell pepper and place in a large bowl or container.

2.) Mix the sugars, mustard, oil celery seed and vinegar in a large saucepan and heat to a boil.  Pour the heated mixture over the shredded cabbage mixture.

Ready for the hot dressing!

3.) Refrigerate for at least six hours or overnight.  Enjoy!
