2 Week Slaw

I got this recipe from a new blog I just started following and it is so good that my husband just told me to never make any other slaw. He said that he has eaten a lot of coleslaw in his life and there is no comparison. This is the best. Check out Nellie's new blog: http://berriesandmore.blogspot.com/ This is the perfect for those who do not like mayonnaise.

We are guessing it is called 2 week slaw because it could last that long in the fridge but I doubt that it ever has.


This is what you will need.


Chop up one head of cabbage and place it in a bowl.


Dice 1 large onion and 1 green pepper and add them to the cabbage.


Sprinkle 1 cup of sugar over the veggies. DO NOT STIR!


Pour 3/4 C. of canola oil in a pot. Add 1 C. cider vinager, 1 tsp. of celery seed, 1 tablespoon of yellow mustard (or 1 tsp. dried mustard powder) and 1 tablespoon of salt.



Bring this to a boil.


Pour it over the vegetables and sugar. DO NOT STIR!


Cover it with plastic and refrigerate overnight.


Wowzers! Thank you Nellie for bringing this into my life! And my husband's, and The Blog Tech's, and Teddy's....hmmm, I don't think that one will fly!
