This recipe is great for those events that you need to prepare a side dish ahead of time. It’s actually best to prepare it and refrigerate for 2-3 days before you serve it. It’s also great for summer picnics because there is no mayonnaise in it.

1 small head cabbage, shredded
1 small onion, finely diced
1 small bell pepper, finely diced
1-2 carrots, shredded
1 cup sugar
1/2 cup oil
1/2 cup vinegar
1 tablespoon celery seed
1 teaspoon salt
In a large bowl, mix together the cabbage, onion, bell pepper, and carrots.


In a small saucepan, bring the sugar, oil, vinegar, celery seed, and salt to a hard boil. Pour over the cabbage mixture and stir well.
Refrigerate in an airtight container. This will keep for up to 3 weeks, but ours never lasts that long.
