“Wonderful slaw recipe passed down from my Grandmother's cook, Vernell. It's similar to a sweet and sour cabbage recipe, and will keep for 2 weeks in the refrigerator. Great served with beef brisket. Best made a day or more before serving.” - by HUNGRYHIPPO2
Original recipe yields 12 servings
- Place the shredded cabbage into a large glass baking dish or other glass dish. Do not use metal or plastic. Sprinkle with 1/2 cup of white sugar and the salt.
- In a separate microwave safe bowl, combine the remaining sugar, oil, vinegar, mustard, celery seed and pepper. Stir to blend in the sugar, then heat until boiling in the microwave, about 3 minutes. Immediately, but carefully pour the boiling mixture over the cabbage. Toss with a wooden or plastic utensil to evenly coat the cabbage.
- Let stand out on the counter for several hours, stirring occasionally. Cover and refrigerate. Toss before serving, and serve with a slotted spoon.

"This turned out delicious. Everybody in my house likes mayo based slaw, except me, but when they tried this they all agreed that it was even better than their usual pick...." See more"
"Very yummy! I like healthy alternatives so I substituted 3/4 c. water and 1/4 c. oil, rather than 1 c. oil. Next time I will add carrots, etc. I will also use less liqid as it was a litle soupy. O..." See moreverall, very tasty!!"
"I am usually bad about leaving reviews, but I just made this, had a taste while it was still warm, and it was amazing! As a child, I would go to visit a friend of my mother's each summer, and her kids..." See more would make this. I have some BBQ ribs cooking right now and thought that this would go well with them. This is exactly as I remebered it to taste, and even my husband who is not a big cole slaw fan thought that this was really good! Thank You!"
