southern-style cole slaw

This one is made to go with bbq chicken or pork or tofu sandwiches, very different than our new england version but very delicious! Similar to KFC cole slaw.
  • 1 cabbage, finely shredded or a 16-ounce package of shredded coleslaw mix
  • 1 medium red onion, quartered and thinly sliced
  • Dressing:
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon dry mustard
  • 1 teaspoon celery seed
  • 1/2 cup vinegar
  • 1/3 cup vegetable oil
Combine shredded cabbage with sliced onion. Combine dressing ingredients and bring to boil. Pour over cabbage and toss. Cool, then refrigerate. A wonderful topping for bbq sandwiches. 

UPDATE: I edited the recipe to halve the sugar, we make it like this and like it better.
