Carolina Slaw Recipe

If you have been searching for a non-mayonnaise slaw, with TONS of tangy vinegar flavor, look no further. This sweet and tangy dressing is cooked for a few minutes on the stovetop to allow the sugar to dissolve and then poured over the shredded cabbage and vegetables.

Not only is this great as a side dish for BBQ meats, but it's also perfect for topping those BBQ sandwiches or as a topping for hot dogs.  YUM!

You can either use pre-shredded cabbage mix or make your own by shredded one large head of cabbage, finely chopping a green bell pepper and an onion and grating up a few carrots.

For the dressing:
1 cup granulated sugar
1 t. salt
2/3 cup vegetable oil
1 1/2 t. dry mustard
1 t. celery seeds
1/2 t. freshly ground black pepper
1 cup apple cider vinegar

Combine the cabbage and vegetables in a large bowl.

In a medium saucepan over medium heat, combine dressing ingredients; bring to a boil. Whisk until dressing comes together and the oil and vinegar are thoroughly combined and the sugar has dissolved. Let the dressing cool slightly and then pour over the cabbage and vegetables. Toss well, cover and refrigerate until thoroughly chilled.

This will make enough slaw for 8 - 10 servings.
