This recipe for Old-Fashioned Ice Box Coleslaw has been around a long time. It is a tangy slaw that keeps in the refrigerator for up to a week or longer and goes great with just about any meal as a side dish. I love making this to go with baked beans on the 4th of July but it is good for any holiday. Just the fact that it keeps for so long is good because you have it on hand to go with sandwiches, hot dogs and burgers anytime. Each time I make this slaw I have forgotten how much we enjoy it and I hope you do, too.
1/2 of a large head of cabbage or 1 small head chopped or grated (I just chop mine)
1 small purple onion, chopped (can use regular onion)
1 green pepper, chopped
1 carrot, chopped
1 teaspoon celery seeds
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
1/2 cup white granulated sugar
1/2 cup white vinegar
1/3 cup oil (I use Canola)
1 teaspoon dry mustard
Combine cabbage, onion, green pepper, carrot, celery seeds, salt and pepper in a large bowl. Set aside. Combine sugar, vinegar, oil and dry mustard in a saucepan and bring to a boil on top of the stove. Remove and let cool. Toss dressing with slaw mixture. Refrigerate several hours or overnight. Makes 7 to 8 cups coleslaw. Keeps up to a week refrigerated. Enjoy!
