Special Cabbage Slaw


Dottie's coleslaw is made with a hot vinegar dressing.

Prep Time: 15 minutes

Total Time: 15 minutes


  • 1 large head cabbage shredded
  • 1 small onion-chopped fine
  • 1 green pepper-chopped fine
  • --
  • 1 cup vinegar
  • 1 cup sugar (I use 3/4 cause we're not too big on real sweet)
  • 2/3 cup cooking oil
  • 1 tablespoon salt


Combine shredded cabbage, onion, and green pepper in a large bowl.
Heat dressing ingredients in a medium saucepan until sugar is dissolved and syrup is boiling.
Pour boiling syrup over cabbage and let stand until salad is cold (do not stir). When cold, cover and place in refrigerator to chill for 24 hours. When ready to serve, stir to mix cabbage. It's nice because you can make it days ahead.
