In the PA Dutch version we simply don't use oil in the mix. Everything else is the same, except onions are optional. Thes rest of the dressing are measured to taste, depending on how "spicy" you like it. We generally don't measure. Try making it with just the vinegar, sugar, salt and pepper. You'll have a whole new taste experience from the other side of the country.

This comes close to a slaw they serve at our favorite Mexican restaurant. Mine came out a little dizzying to look at since all I had on hand was red cabbage and yellow bell peppers! It was really bright (and pretty). It's good. (I have tried using this dressing with packaged cole slaw mix and it doesn't turn out well at all, it is limp instead of crisp.)

marinate it overnight!
