Sweet and Sour Coleslaw

Recipe from: chef sharonitall
Servings: 8 to 10

This is a great receipe which can be made a few days ahead of time. I always bring it to our family reunion picnic every year and it is always a hit. For best results do make it at least 24 hours ahead to allow the flavours to penetrate and soften the vegetables.

1 large cabbage
4 medium carrots
2 sweet onions
1 large green pepper
⅔ cup salad oil
⅔ cup white vinegar
½ cup white sugar
2 teaspoons salt
2 teaspoons celery seeds
½ teaspoon pepper

Shred or chop all vegetables finely—I use a sharp knife and chop by hand. First remove the hard core from the cabbage and dispose. Place all vegetables in a large bowl.

For dressing, mix all remaing ingredients in saucepan and boil for 2 to 3 minutes. Pour over vegetables, cover and place in refrigerator. Let set at least 24 hours. Keeps for 2 to 3 weeks in covered container or jar in fridge.
