too sweet, Member belama

Way too much sugar. I used 1/2 cup and still it was too sweet. I should have known better. Guess I forgot about the american palate. A good recipe otherwise. Boiling the dressing is a very good idea. It helps the cabbage soak up flavour. I sugge just and 1/8 or 1/4 cup max for the sugar. Or just a tablescpoon. Seriously. Especially if your bbq sauce or rub for the pulled pork has sugar in it too.
