    I love typical slaw but my favorite is thin chopped cabbage, green and red (1/4 red to 3/4's green), carrots, and finely chopped onion.
    The sauce is garlic and regular vinegar, sugar, mayonaise, dijon mustard and salt a pepper to taste. Leave all to marinade in refrigerator for at least 3 hours.
    I do not put cups and measurements because it is easy to figure out by look and taste.
    Enjoy!

    I'm a lazy person, Pre shredded cabbage (because its to hot here to grow cabbage this time of year) and the slaw dressing beside the mayo! Good to go! Everyone asks for the resipe! there is none! But its good. aoh you do have to mix it just before its eaten, maybe whithin 2 hours. Then chill. Cabbage is wet. It will leak and make a mess of things.

    shredded cabbage and carrots. Miracle whip (several big spoonfuls) stir and sprinkle with sugar(about 1/2 cup for a big batch) salt and pepper stir and put in fridge in covered dish. Stir occasionally. Everybody always says that I make the best slaw....I just smile and say "thanks". If they only knew how easy it is!!
