Cole Slaw

Howdy, foodies! It's been awhile, hasn't it?
I wanted to share this delicious cole slaw recipe just in time for your Memorial Day picnic!

You'll love the sweet/sour taste and it's much safer than the mayonnaise-style recipes when you are eating outdoors!

The recipe is from my Aunt Kathryn Wall- a wonderful cook.

1 med. head cabbage
1 thinly sliced onion
1 green pepper (diced)
1 carrots, shredded
7/8 cup sugar
1 c. vinegar
3/4 cup salad oil
2 tsp. sugar
1 tsp. salt
1 tsp. dry mustard
1 tsp. celery seed

Shred cabbage; put in covered dish. Mix cabbage with onion, green pepper and carrot. Cover with 7/8 cups sugar. Bring to a boil the vinegar, oil, 2 tsp. sugar, salt, dry mustard, and celery seed. Immediately pour over onion/cabbage/sugar and cover. LET STAND 4 HOURS; then stir and serve. Will keep in fridge for two weeks.



  1. Yes it has been awhile. I was just thinking I hadn't heard from you in quite a while. This is a great recipe to come back with though. So simple and clean and perfectly seasonable.

  2. Kelly- I've been overloaded with projects- but finally seeing the light at the end of the tunnel!

  3. mmmm...I'm totally in the mood for a picnic and this would fit right in! Sounds delish :D

  4. welcome back and a great recipe for a classic
